Biographical Information

Evetta Johnson, a third-grade teacher at Minnie Hughes Elementary School in Hollywood, believes that the Science and Math Fair she organizes at the school "provides students with hands-on math and science experience that will prepare them for life in a scientific world." Participation in this annual event gives students the opportunity to work on long-term projects and to pursue problems that are designed to integrate math and science instruction. In an effort to increase student familiarity with current technologies, Mrs. Johnson has integrated technological tools into all facets of the curriculum. The computer-assisted reading and writing programs - Time to Read and Future Authors Workshop - for example, are part of the daily schedule in her classroom. Mrs. Johnson is also involved in Project Search, a program that uses gifted and talented learning strategies for all students. She is currently pursuing an advanced degree in special education.
