Ms. Kristi Johnson, M.Ed.

Who is your school counselor?

Hello everyone! My name is Kristi Johnson and I have been a school counselor for eighteen years, five years here at Magness Creek. I think I have the best job in the world! When I'm not at school, I take classes and am working on my license to be a mental health counselor. In my free time, I love adult coloring, playing with my four grandkids, and traveling.

Magness Creek Bridge Builders

We will start our Bridge Builder Program beginning the first week of October! Teachers will nominate one student a week to be recognized as a Bridge Builder! Magness Creek Bridge Builders are students who show growth in the areas of: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, and Relationships in addition to the Three R's! Research shows that people who are successful in life have these four characteristics. Bridge Builders receive a t-shirt and a certificate.

Each morning, along with the Pledge and the National Anthem, we recite parts of the

Bridge Builder Pledge:

I am RESPECTFUL of myself, others, and property.

I am RESPONSIBLE for my choices and their consequences.

I show RESILIENCE by working through hard jobs. I welcome mistakes because mistakes are how I learn.

I build positive RELATIONSHIPS with others in my class, school, and community.

I am building a bridge to my future!
