Mrs. Candace Johnson
Hello and Welcome to Morton's Music Class
My name is Mrs. Johnson and I have taught at Morton Elementary for 11 years now. I am originally from Charleston, South Carolina but call Akron, Ohio home (as you can guess I was a military child too). I moved to Jacksonville in August of 2007 to become a teacher at Morton.
When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I have an amazing little boy named Shawn, a beautiful daughter named Emily and two adorable pups named Daisy and Willow. My main instrument is the trumpet and I have been playing it for, well lets just say a very long time;). I enjoy many different genres of music and one of my favorite things is to download a new album and drive with the windows down.
If you ever have any questions or concerns feel free to e-mail me or call the school. I would love to help in any way possible.
I received my Bachelor's in Music Education from Mount Union College in 2007. Go Raiders!
In April of 2013, I graduated with my Masters in Instructional Technology and Design from Walden University.
During the Summer of 2014, I was able to attend and obtain my Level 1 Orff Training. As often as I can, I love incorporating and running my classroom with this mindset. To find out more or learn about the Orff approach, you can click on the link below. What is Orff Schulwerk?
