Dear Virtual Visitors,
Welcome back to all of our returning 7th and 8th grade students, and a special welcome to our incoming 6th graders. My name is Mrs. Johnson and I am the seventh grade and sixth grade Magnet Assistant Principal. Even though I deal primarily with the sixth and seventh grade students I am here for all students that require my assistance. I am enthused about the outlook of this school year. It is with great honor that I serve as one of the assistant principals at Tyrone Middle School. I am committed to tapping into all resources to provide our students with the highest quality education.
We will continue to excel in educating our students and seeking success in all aspects of academia and beyond. With the cooperation of students, parents, teachers, administration, and community members, we will fulfill our VISION. It is our hope that we will build extensive relationships with our students, parents, businesses, and community as a whole. I am committed to going above and beyond in order for Tyrone Middle School to continue exceeding the expectation. It is my belief that Positivity is the key to success. I am looking forward to a year filled with success for both students and teachers.
