Mr. Bud Johnson

Little bit more about me:  I guess you could say I am an outdoor person.  I was raised in the small town of Challis, Idaho.  My parents owned a working cattle ranch. I learned many things working with my hands and by trial and error.  After graduating from Challis High School in 1981, I attended Boise State University in the Fall.  I found out early that I was not ready for college. I returned to Challis and found work in an open pit mine for four years. I then attended Lewis Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho in 1985 and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in History with a Minor in Native American Studies in 1991.  My love of the outdoors led me to seek employment with the Idaho Department Lands as a Forest Technician. In 1995 I returned to LCSC to gain a Social Studies teaching endorsement.  I returned to my hometown in Challis and was approached by the high school principal about becoming a consultant Special Education Teacher. I again completed my Special Education requirements through LCSC. I taught in Challis four years.  I joined the staff at Eagle Middle School in 2005 and am starting my 15th year at this wonderful school.

I live in Parma with wife Kristi and my sons Tristan, Dan, Aaron,  Elliot, and daughter Jessica. In my spare time I help my wife with our Goldendoodle business.
