About Sammy Johnston

This is my fifth year teaching K/1 at Alice King Community School and I am extremely excited to be a part of your child's education! I had the honor of doing my student teaching internship with AKCS, as well, and am truly grateful for a wonderful place to foster my love for children, helping to mold young minds and constantly meeting the needs of every student that walks in our door. I have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, both from the University of New Mexico. Outside of school, I am an avid sports fan, I love to travel and spend time with loved ones. We look forward to a wonderful year together, working with our ever growing students. Our EA this year is Leah Hoecker West. This is her first year with Alice King. When she is not with our wonderful students she is with her own three amazing kids (and three crazy dogs and one funny cat). She loves to read and knit, and go hiking when she gets the chance.
