    Greetings parents and community members!

    I am honored to be able to serve our school community as co-principal of Hammond Eastside for grades Pre-K through 3rd. This is my ninth year at Hammond Eastside Magnet School and my twentieth year as an educator in Louisiana. At Hammond Eastside, we strive for our students, faculty, and staff to embody the IB Learner Profile attributes as an authorized IB world school offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP).

    Our mission is to empower students to become internationally minded and compassionate citizens who reflect on local and global challenges and actively contribute to peaceful resolutions. Through inquiry-based learning, students make conceptual connections which are engaging, relevant, challenging, and significant to lifelong learning. 

    We are driven to make the world a better place by teaching children to be problem-solvers and internationally-minded individuals who are willing to work together to make GREAT things happen! I am excited about this school year and possibilities this new endeavor brings to our school family.

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

    With regards,
    DeShea D. Johnson
