Mrs. Donna Johnson-Short

I have been teaching gifted students in Upper Adams School District since 1997. Prior to that, I taught pre-school in Carlisle at both the YWCA and ChildTime. I have also taught kindergarten and first grade in Virginia. I did a short stint working as an insurance claims adjuster in North Carolina. Currently, I teach GATEways as part-time pull-out classes. I also co teach with various teachers in grades 4, 5, and 6 in order to work with many high achieving students. Additionally, I teach math enrichment groups in grades 1, 2, and 3.
I currently live in Carlisle with my husband Tim.  I enjoy walking in the evenings, reading, and of course, finding interesting activities for my GATEways students:)
