Administrative Staff

Janean Johnson,  Principal

Janean PictureMy name is Janean Johnson.  Upon completing high school, I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.  I graduated from Cal Poly in 1999 with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Agriculture Science.  I student taught for the Linden High School District in their Agriculture Science Department prior to moving to Bakersfield.  I was hired, in 1999, by the Rosedale Union School District where I remained for 19 years.  I served as a classroom teacher in grades kindergarten, first, and fourth grades before becoming the Dean of Students.  I completed my Master’s Degree in Education Administration in 2007 at Cal State Bakersfield.

I am excited to become part of the Richland team!  My goal for this year is to have the opportunity to work closely with staff and to develop a rapport with them, to get to know each and every family at Redwood Elementary, establish a relationship with parents to better serve the individual educational needs of their child, and work together as a team!  My personal educational motto is “Every Student, Every Day, Whatever It Takes!”
