Principal Johnson
This is my 5
th year serving as a Principal, but my 1st year here in the Cotati Rohnert Park Unified School District. It is an honor to be the principal of Lawrence E Jones Middle school and join the staff and families in building a strong supportive and caring community. My career in education began 19 years ago as an instructional assistant. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree and teaching credential from Sonoma State University. I completed my Master’s in Educational Administration through University of Phoenix. I also completed Masters in Reading Curriculum and Development as well as Technology Curriculum and Development through Grand Canyon University. As a teacher I taught 1st grade for 12 years in Santa Rosa and Las Vegas. I am very excited to join Lawrence E Jones Middle School and meet all of the families, staff, and most especially students.

My goal is to continue to support the faculty and students as they work towards success. Our focus as a staff is to help students acquire the education needed to meet the educational demands for their career goals. I love working in education, because I enjoy the students. I enjoy spending time with my husband and 5 daughters. We love to spend time together camping, swimming, and relaxing. I am committed to helping all of our students enjoy their time with us here at LJ and to take advantage of all of the resources we have to ensure their successful completion of middle school. I would love to meet everyone, so please stop by and introduce yourselves.
