Diana Johnson is a fourth grade science/social studies teacher in the Jefferson-Morgan School District in Greene County. Working in a small, rural school with an extremely limited budget can be challenging; Diana is working to transform her classroom environment from a typical classroom to a science lab room. With recent trends towards STEM and STEAM education, her district would like to provide more opportunities for learners to experience STEM and STEAM in a conducive atmosphere.
Diana also provides real-life activities for her students, involving plant growth (hydroponics and soil planting), animal life (egg hatching), animal care (live animals in the classroom), environment, ecosystems, and water cycle. Her classroom really is alive!
