Mr. Rick Johnson

Welcome to our classroom! I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Asim this year teaching and learning from and with your 3rd grader. I am excited to partner with you, as well, in your child's education. Your student will be learning so many new things in 3rd grade, I can't wait to get started!

I am starting my 13th year at Jonas Salk. Before that I worked in Fitness as a personal trainer for many years. Outside of work I enjoy travel with my wife (we just got back from Hawaii), reading and keeping up with current events, exercising, and cheering on the Chicago sports teams (especially the Cubs). 

We have one dog at home (Wrigley), and two grown daughters. Our oldest lives in Virginia and is a teacher. Our younger daughter lives in La Grange and works in real estate.

I am looking forward to meeting you at the Sneak Peak/Ice Cream Social on August 15th from 2-4 pm!
