Applied Biology

Shay Johnson


I grew up in Murrieta, California where I attended school K-12. I went to college at CSUSM where I majored in Kinesiology and later earned my teaching credential through their Middle Level Education Program in Multiple Subjects and General Science. I’ll be teaching 8th grade Science and Applied Biology (gardening) my first year here at Lincoln Middle! It is important to me that I establish a strong community in my classroom where students feel safe, cared for, and supported!

I have many passions in life, two of them being my curiosity and interest in SCIENCE and my joy for TEACHING (like fusion)! I am eager to share this interest with my students and hopefully spark a sense of wonder within them. We will take a journey from the incomprehensibly small to the infinitely large, understanding the connectedness of everything along the way!

Some of my other passions in life include hiking, camping, playing tennis, cooking healthy cuisine, reading non-fiction, and dwelling on the beach.
