Miss Jaimee Johnston
My name is Jaimee Johnston and I am your student’s art teacher! I am very excited to have the opportunity to help your students grow in their creativity and technical skill! I graduated from the University of Idaho with my bachelor's degree in art education and received my master's degree from Northwest Nazarene. I previously worked at Mountain View High School and Sawtooth Middle School, but I am over the moon to be working at Centennial.
I love my job and I am happy to go wake up in the morning to teach your student art. One of my goals is to show my students that I have a passion for making my own art as well. I have had a few gallery shows and was recently a featured artist in a First Thursday show. In addition to teaching through West Ada, I own my own company called Syringa Art Studio where I instruct art summer camps, after school programs, private lessons, and painting parties. I have also worked as a commissioned artist and a City of Boise Parks and Recreation Play Camp Art Coordinator for 7 years. I am very passionate about art education and I will do anything I can to help my students improve their artistic skills and find a place where they can express themselves. Please feel free to contact me with any worries or concerns!
