Greetings! My name is Dave Johnson and I am a Middle School E.C. teacher with a focus on middle school math. The 2022-23 school year will be my 4th year at Woods. I grew up in Northeast Ohio and graduated from Youngstown State University in 2010 with a major in Mild-Moderate Special Education. I currently hold my North Carolina licensure in both K-12 Exceptional Children and 6-9 Mathematics. I am also the head coach of the girls and boys middle school cross country team.
It is all too common that students with negative experiences with math will develop fear and anxiety related to the subject. This can often lead to a negative feeling about school in general. My goal is to approach the instruction of math in a way that is both accessible and conscientious.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two dogs, trail running and cooking. My favorite place to run in the area is at the Fews Ford area of Eno River State Park.
