Welcome to Mrs. Johnson's Writing Corner, located at Rome Middle School!  Rome Middle School is located in Rome, GA, known as the city "where the rivers meet and the mountains begin".  We house 7th and 8th grade students, and we have 8 feeder elementary schools around the city.  In January 2010, Rome Middle was once again named a Georgia School of Excellence!  We are very proud of this honor, and proud to be the Rome Wolves!

My name is Kelli Johnson, and I will soon enter my fifth year of teaching.  I am originally from Villa Rica, GA, and I graduated with my BA in Psychology from the University of West Georgia in 2002.  I was a social worker for three years before I began my teaching career.  I hold a masters degree in curriculum, instruction, and assessment from Walden University.  My husband is also a teacher, and we have a 1 year old son, Jacob.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, traveling, shopping, and reading.

As you may have guessed, I am a language arts teacher, and I teach 7th grade students in both the resource and inclusion settings.  Language Arts is about so much more than grammar and punctuation.  In my class, you are encouraged to write about what interests you, and I show you how to use writer's craft as a way to make your writing POP, and engage your reader!  One of my favorite websites for interesting lesson plans, as well as helpful resources for students, is ReadWriteThink.
