Joe JohnsonHigh School ELA, MS Art
Hello! My name is Joe, and I teach high school English and creative writing and middle school art. I’m from Montana, and after stays in Washington and Oregon I’m excited to have landed here in New Meadows. For the last two years I’ve been teaching writing at the University of Massachusetts while pursuing my masters in poetry. I’ve been working for the Forest Service in McCall during the summers, and prior to that I was exploring outside, doing geology/geography in far-flung places. I truly believe that the world is a classroom, and that a classroom can change the world. My favorite quote is up on the wall. In it, T.S. Eliot asks, “Do I dare disturb the universe?” And each time we get ourselves up and go to school, we answer: Yes!
