Mrs. Johannsen is a very exciting and fascinating person! We knew that there was a lot to find out about Mrs. Johannsen, so the Media Club set out to get to know her more! We were full of questions for Mrs. Johannsen, so we asked her six questions that the Media Club thought would let people know a bit more about Mrs. Johannsen. First we asked her was “How long have you been here at Coolidge?” She replied with the answer of, “12 years. I have taught here a long time, so it is either 12 years or 13 years.” Her favorite school subject when she was in school was math! Mrs. Johannsen must have a head for numbers, and since she enjoys math, her favorite subject to teach is math, too. But Mrs. Johannsen also has a lot of fun teaching P.E and Language Arts and writing.
Mrs. Johannsen has taught other grades, like 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and taught 5th grade for five years. She also taught at a high school and taught Freshmen (9th grade) and Juniors (11th grade).
In her spare time, Mrs. Johannsen enjoys hiking and doing arts and crafts.
If you walk into the cafeteria this week or next week you will see the 5th graders in the cafeteria hipping and hopping!
As part of the PTA Hip-Hop program, the 5th graders will get 2 weeks of hip-hop lessons instructed by Pasadena Civic Ballet.
The 5th graders are dancing to the song "I don't like it" by Flo Rida and will perform at the Coolidge Variety Show on May 20th.
On April 8th, the fifth graders traveled back in time for two and a half hours! Not really, though. They participated in the American Revolution Play. They had been practicing their Cards and Battle Scenes for a month! They applied all they learned about the revolution and the original thirteen colonies to win points for their teams. The teams were: the Redcoats, the White Tories, and the Blue Rebels. This event was why the 1st to 4th graders had to eat their lunch outside on the tables.

Our character trait for April was Self-Acceptance. April’s book of the month was called “Otto The Owl Who Loved Poetry” by Vern Kousky. Otto loves poetry. He prefers reading to roosting and reciting to hunting. When other owls begin to make fun of Otto, he embarks on a difficult journey, finding along his way both his inner poet and a community that accepts him for who he is.
We need a new Media Club advisor needed for next year. Go to our contact page if you are interested.
