Ms. April Johnson

April Johnson is from North Carolina and loves young people! She was named 2018-19 Teacher of the Year for Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. A graduate of Winston Salem State University, she is rooted in the arts of different cultures.

  • THE 2023-24 ART THEME THIS YEAR IS "P.U.N.K.: PUPILS USING NEW KNOWLEDGE". YOU MAY BE THINKING PUNK ROCK? THAT'S NOT MY SCENE, THAT'S NOT MY STYLE. HIP HOP, ROCK, AND PUNK ARE ALL ABOUT ATTITUDE AND EXPRESSION. JUST LIKE ART!  ALL THREE MUSIC STYLES AND CULTURES STARTED WITH YOUNG PEOPLE EXPRESSING THEMSELVES USING 3 THINGS- PASSION, UNITY, AND A D.I.Y. ATTITUDE. PEOPLE OFTEN ASK HOW TO BE GOOD AT ART AND ARTISTS USE THE SAME THREE IDEAS. PASSION IS YOUR HEART, YOUR INTERESTS, VALUES AND BELIEFS. UNITY IS COMING TOGETHER WITH OTHER VOICES (PAST AND PRESENT) TO CREATE NEW IDEAS.  A D.I.Y. ATTITUDE IS ABOUT TEACHING YOURSELF, NOT ALLOWING YOURSELF TO BE SPOON-FED. MIDDLE SCHOOL IS ABOUT USING YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND LEARNING TO PUT SKILLS TO USE.  SO LET'S ROCK!

    rock out!
