My name is Clarissa Johnson.I was born and raised here in the Gallup area and a former graduate of Rehoboth High School. I have taught two years prior to coming here. I spent a year in kindergarten and a year in first grade. I enjoy teaching early elementary because the children are loving, quick to forgive, and each day is anew. I attended the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in Social Studies. I also spent time in Washington, D.C. as an intern in former Senator Jeff Bingaman's office working on education related topics which has inspired a desire to go in public policy. I am excited to be apart of the Rehoboth community.
