Music Teacher Transitions From Frontier Elementary
Russell Johnson commutes from Glasgow to teach music at Wolf Point Junior/Senior High School, but he’s no newcomer to Wolf Point.
Prior to 2019, Johnson taught for four years at Frontier Elementary School. Before that, he spent two years in Glasgow.
Johnson said he splits the difference on the extra miles with wife, Jenna Johnson, who teaches in Hinsdale.
Johnson was raised in Missoula and attended University of Montana, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in music education.
Johnson says he enjoys working with the junior high/high school age group. He told the Northern Plains Independent that older kids make the music more enjoyable.
“I’m able to do more with them musically,” said Johnson.
He said his hobbies include folf and hiking.
