Mr. J's Algebra 1 & Math 8 Classes

My name is Daniel Johnson and I am a lifelong resident of Pickens County.  I attended Jacksonville State University as well as Reinhardt University.  I graduated Reinhardt University in 2013 with a degree in Music Education.  In the time following my college graduation I earned a certification in mathematics as well.  During the 2016-2017 school year I served PCMS as the ISS Coordinator and also earned a social studies certification.  I then moved into a sixth grade math position for the 2017-2018 school year and earned my gifted certification.  I greatly enjoyed my second year as an 8th grade teacher and love having the opportunity to serve students who are attending the same school system that I attended.  My students will most likely confirm that I can, occasionally, act a little goofy.  I, however, assure you that I care about each and every one of my students greatly and will do anything in my power to enable their success this year and beyond.

     When I'm not teaching I enjoy playing the harmonica and the trumpet.  I perform regularly as a member of my own band and I love attending concerts as well.  I also served as the trumpet instructor for Atlanta CV Drum and Bugle Corps from 2016-2019.  When I am not busy with one of the aforementioned activities I enjoy hanging out with my dog, Lump, and aggressively cheering on the Atlanta Falcons.  RISE UP!
