Mrs. Iris Fain-Johnson

Welcome!  I am excited to be an ELA/English I instructor during what will be a most interesting year with all types of possibilities! Moving to Flexible Innovative Virtual Education (FIVE) mid-year has been one of the best challenges! Prior to moving back to Columbia, I taught high school English for 15 years.  I love the change from the high school level to the middle level because I clearly understand the expectations awaiting my students within the secondary level. 

This is my ninth year in Lexington-Richland 5! I enjoy my family time with my children and my grandchildren! Traveling, reading, and music are my favorite passions. Effective literacy practices do empower all students.  Please reach out to me via email ijohnson@lexrich5.org
