Middle School Math

Margaret Johnson

6th Grade, 7th Grade, 8th Grade 




I am Margaret Johnson, the Middle School Math Teacher here at Pine Strawberry School.   ASU is my alma mater – emphasis in Math, Math Education, Spanish and Math instruction to ESL students.

I have been teaching full time for about 33 years….23 of them here in Pine.  Math tutoring would add  another 15 years to that.  I try to provide a healthy, pleasant atmosphere in which to learn with an aquarium and plants displayed throughout the classroom along with positive affirmations.

There is such power in a strong Math Foundation.  I emphasize this daily to your children.  I request that they study every night the material that was covered in class.  There are also IXL (district provided web program) lessons posted regularly to help provide more practice with the Math concepts for students to learn them well or realize they need more help.

I LOVE Math and teaching Math.  My dream is that I can instill some of that passion in your children….or at least a like or appreciation for Math.

I also help coach archery at Pine Strawberry School.


I currently study animal behavior/training and am a certified dog trainer.  I hope to receive a degree in this field at some point also.  When not teaching Middle School Students, I train and deploy dogs for search and rescue for the Gila County Sheriff’s Office.   I am also an FAA licensed sUAS (drone) pilot for SAR and Gila County Sheriff’s Office. I co-authored a bill that was signed by the Governor in July 2022 enhancing K9 training for all recognized Search & Rescue K9 Teams in Arizona.  Bottom, middle picture is my star dog, Legacy Lucy, and I at the Capitol to testify in support of the Search & Rescue legislation I co-authored earlier this year.


Archery, kayaking, sailing, hiking, horseback riding, swimming, gardening, photography, knitting/crocheting/quilting.  I don’t watch much TV…except during football season!
