Mr. Johnson teaches Project Lead the Way (Design and Modeling) at Mountain Brook Junior High. He also coaches girls soccer at Mountain Brook High School.
When asked about his class, Mr. Johnson says, “this class is going to be an experience like you’ve never had!” Mr. Johnson uses the PLTW curriculum to students develop a better understanding of the Design Thinking process and how this systematic process can improve your problem solving skills in your daily life. He helps students use empathy, along with design thinking, to design, create and engineer solutions to everyday problems.
In order to get the most out of this class, you should come prepared with a positive attitude and an open mind each day. We are looking forward to a great school year!
