Brad Johnson

Brad Johnson is the Environmental Science Teacher in the Gold House.  He has had the joy and opportunity to work on interdisciplinary teams across four distinct buildings during the district’s attempts to create integrated learning environments for its students. He was able to work with the group that first opened SES and has taught in Gold House while providing technology support since then. Field study highlights include an investigation by bicycle down the backbone of Scotland, pulling sleds across the winter wilderness in northern Minnesota, and searching for sustainability on the volcanic islands of Hawaii and Iceland. His current research at the University of Minnesota looks at relationships between complexity theory and learning about “fuzzy” problems in environmental science.
