Ms. Jo Johnson
I am a 6th generation Floridian from Jacksonville, Florida, and have lived in central Florida for over 20 years. Prior to becoming a teacher, I was an Operations and Management Consultant for the Department of Children and Families for 20 years, then a private consultant for community providers of mental health and substance abuse treatment services. My own children attended Belleview schools and convinced me to substitute at Belleview High. As a result, I decided to teach full time and applied at Fort King Middle School, where I have been ever since. This is my eighth year of teaching social studies at The Fort, having taught 6th, 7th and 8th grades. I am returning to 8th grade U.S. History after teaching 6th grade for the past couple of years, so I look forward to having some of my former 6th grade students again this year!
