"Señor Johns makes Spanish fun!" shares Leah Merahn, a 2nd grade student. "He once took a ball and passed it around, and we got to ask questions and give answers in Spanish." Cameron Johns began teaching Spanish to kindergarten - 4th grade students at Lone Pine and WHMS this winter. "Everyone has been extremely welcoming!" Johns shares. "I've really enjoyed the short time that I've been here, and I already feel like I'm part of the family."
