Ms. Misty Vogelpohl
Welcome to Johnson GT! My name is Misty Vogelpohl, and I am so happy to be the Gifted and Talented Specialist at Johnson Elementary School. I have been a teacher for the past 16 years, and I am looking forward to another exciting year of teaching here in Prosper ISD.
I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and earned my teaching certificates for teaching elementary students and for teaching gifted and talented students. I have had the joy of teaching kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth, and fifth graders for the past 16 years with 12 of those years teaching gifted and talented students.
I chose teaching because I find it so fulfilling to work with children who have so much potential just waiting to be discovered. I believe that learning should be fun and relevant to students. Students should be empowered with knowledge to become self-motivated, exemplary citizens, and lifelong learners through a student-centered active learning environment that encourages curiosity and problem solving. I look forward to taking this journey with your children.
"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things,
because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
