Johanna Russell

Hi, I’m Johanna Russell and I love teaching art to 8th and 9th graders in Ankeny, Iowa. I have been teaching in Ankeny since graduating from the University of Iowa with Honors in Art Education (2003). I earned a master’s from Viterbo University (2006). After teaching art, my next greatest joy in education is working with other art teachers. I find the curiosity of art teachers addictive. I have experience with flipped teaching, differentiated instruction/ multi-tiered Instruction, curriculum writing k-12 (including for the new art standards), and standards-based grading and assessment. I am honored to have an opportunity to learn and grow with you through The Art of Education University!
