    Gifted and Talent Teacher



    My name is Mrs. Johnson, formally known as Miss Sommers. I recently celebrated my first anniversary June 6th. I have been part of the MBE family for seven years now!  This is a wonderful place to be and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher. 

    I was not born in the South but moved here as soon as I could. I am originally from Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. I left in 1993 to receive 2 degrees from University of North Carolina at Wilmington. My first degree is Social work and then I also have an elementary education degree.  While teaching Kindergarten on Hatteras Island in NC, I received my masters from East Carolina and then went on to my Board Certification in Early Childhood.  I have taught Kindergarten for 5 years, 1st one year, 5th two years and going on my 7th year teaching third grade and gifted and talented.

    You might be thinking, does she do anything for fun? The answer is yes, absolutely! I put first things first for years and now I am back to loving surfing, tennis, traveling, working out and spending as much time outside as possible.

    I look forward to an exciting, fun filled year!
