Ms. Johnson (Counselor)


Hello! I am so happy to be joining the Tobler Tiger family this year! I was born and raised in Las Vegas before moving to Reno to attend UNR where I received a Bachelors in Human Development and Family Studies. After college I moved home to attend UNLV where I received my masters of education in School Counseling. This year will be my 6th year as an elementary counselor. I have always known I wanted to work with kids and thoroughly enjoy getting to see smiling students everyday! I enjoy getting lost in a good book, cooking and trying new foods and traveling!
