State Capitol

Hi y'all. I'm Patti Johnson. My subjects are 6th Grade Math and 7th Grade Social Studies, which of course is actually Texas History, the best kind! This year will be my third year working with Theater Arts and OAP.

My pride and joy is my family including my husband Scott, who farms and runs our trucking business. We have 4 grown up children, a daughter-in law, 2 son-in-laws, 2 grandsons (4 years and 8 month old), a grand daughter coming November 2019, two dogs and some goats. You will learn more about my family this year, they have been the greatest learning experience in my life!

My hobbies include traveling, museums, shopping and reading, especially about Native Americans, American Explorers & of course,  Texas History.  I'm excited for a new year at FJH.

Bullock Museum of History

7th Grade Social Studies is THE best! This year you will learn all about the wonderful state we call home. Texas is diverse, wild and exciting! It isn't only the story of our state, but the story of the WORLD. Strap on your stirrups because its going to be a great ride.

Pencil pouch with pencils, red pen, eraser, scissors, glue. We use scissors and glue A LOT!

You will have many class projects and presentations to apply your Technology skills.
