6th Grade E.L.A.
Mr. Johnson outdoors

My name is Nick Johnson and I am the 6th grade ELA teacher at Olson Middle School. I grew up in Minneapolis and came up through the Minneapolis Public Schools (Holland-Waite Park-Northeast-South). I have been working for Minneapolis Public Schools since 2013 in multiple capacities; as a SEA, a Reserve Teacher, and a Full-Time Teacher. I have worked at Olson in some capacity or another the past 5 years and know how incredible Olson students are; I am very excited to see the brilliance and new ways of thinking that each student brings into the classroom.


My job as an ELA teacher is to help students find their voice as a writer as well as continue to develop their critical thinking and analysis skills. I always look forward to the new perspectives students bring to the materials we cover.

In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors camping, hiking, biking, and canoeing.
