Hello Pioneer community,
My name is Doug Johnson and I am the new principal here at Pioneer El. I am excited for this new position and I am really excited for this coming school year. I look forward to meeting all of you and your students.
A little about myself. I originally received my degree in business marketing and administration from Utah State. 16 years ago, I made a career change and went back to school to get my teaching license and ultimately my master’s degree along with my administration endorsement. I taught first grade for eight years in the Granite District. I went up to the Davis District as an administrative intern for two years then came back to Granite. I was an assistant principal for two years here at Granite and have recently been the principal at Gearld Wright El for three years.
I have six beautiful kids ranging from 10 to 21 and have an amazing wife, Brandi.
I love what I do and love that I get to work with kids and staff each day. It’s a job I enjoy waking up each day and coming to work.
One of my passions is working with kids and involving the community here at the school. Your role at home is so important and I hope that we can work together to create the best educational experience for your kids.
Thank you for letting us teach and help you kids every day. It is a task the we take seriously and love.
