My name is Mary Johnsen, Kindergarten teacher at Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School. I have been with MQP since 2012. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from St. Cloud State University, and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum Development with an emphasis in reading from Concordia University. I am trained in Orton Gillingham, which is a multisensory approach for children who need extra skills learning how to read.
My husband is David, and we have two children, Ryan and Natalie. We also have a tabby cat named Maple.
My favorite Bible verse: “Don’t forget to listen to God’s voice in everything you do and everywhere you go; He’s the one to keep you on track”. Proverbs 3:6
