To all my students I am Mrs. Johnston or Mrs. J, but my name is Debbie Johnston.  This is my 5th year of teaching.  I was a 6th grade teacher for 2 years and will be starting my 3rd year of Kindergarten.  I have had several occupations over the years: hair dresser, realtor and business owner and now teacher, which has been my favorite job.  I have been married for 32 years to my wonderful husband, Dan Johnston.  He himself is an educator and currently is the Superintendent/K-6 Principal in Shields Valley, MT.  Together we have 4 adult children:  Tyler (30), Aaron (27), Colton (26) and Tori (23).  My oldest son is married to a Darby girl and they have a son Eoin, who is 5.  We definitely are a college family.  My husband completed his doctorate degree and our son Aaron is getting his doctorate in Pharmacy.  As a mom I am proud to say that all my children are college graduates.  I myself went to MSU (Go Cats!) and finished up my degree at Western Governor's University.  

I was born and raised in Helena, MT and as they say, that makes me a Native Montanan.  My husband and I have lived in St.Ignatius, MT. and Kirtland, NM. We have lived in Darby for over 20 years and our 4 children are Darby High School graduates.  I love going camping, fishing, hiking and 4 wheeling around our beautiful state.  When I am not out playing, then I am home gardening, enjoying crafts or spending time with my family.
