Mrs. Johnson has a Master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida. She has taught in both public and private school settings. While homeschooling her three daughters, she discovered IEW. During this time she used this method to teach her daughters as well as others in the local community. For the past thirteen years, IEW has been her writing curriculum of choice. She enjoys teaching with the Structure and Style method because it offers students a structured way of thinking about writing. As students use these structures, they have an opportunity to fill their "toolbox" with literary devices they can use for life.
