Miss Annie John
Welcome to Team 766's webpage!
My name is Annie John, and this is my seccond year at Wilson. I have been a student or teacher every year since I was four years old (K-12 + College + Teaching + Post-grad), and this will be my 35th first day of school! I have been teaching for 13 years, including every grade from 2nd-5th. Fifth grade is my favorite, of course!
I love living in the Oro Valley community, seven minutes from work (my commute in Seattle was over 90 minutes!), and ten minutes from my favorite stores (Target and Starbucks). My daughter and I enjoy traveling, card making, watching movies, and singing in the car. However, my favorite thing to do is watch hockey (Go Roadrunners!) -- I have season tickets, so expect to see me whenever you come to a game!!
This year is filled with excitement, as the fifth graders are transitioning to the independence of 6th grade. When you enter 766, you will see students collaborating, supporting each other, and most of all - learning with enthusiasm. My greatest joy is seeing the light bulb go off in a student's mind when they have an "a-ha" moment - it means they finally understand a concept they have been struggling with! I'm excited to see thousands of a-ha moments, even on the first day of school.
Please, never hesitate to contact me for any reason - we are partners in this journey! I'm looking forward to this year!
