Linda Johnson

Gifted & Talented

This is my 9th year at Franklin as the Gifted and Talented Specialist. I have worked with gifted students for over 25 years in the elementary, middle and high schools in both Aurora and Greeley in various capacities. Every day I come to school, I am energized by my students who always continue to amaze me with their unique way of thinking, their sense of humor, and their special talents. I am honored and humbled to be able to work with them as they teach me valuable lessons and perspectives on life. Professionally I have been involved with the Summer Enrichment Program at UNC. I have also served on the Colorado of Association Gifted/Talented Community Outreach Board for the last 6 years, co-coordinating our Parent Institute at our annual fall CAGT Conference. In my spare time, I love spending time with my four grown boys and their families as well as getting together with friends. I love music, art, reading, gardening as well as volunteering at a local nursing home.
