Mrs. Lara Johnson

     Hi. I'm Lara Johnson. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology from MSU in Springfield. I also received a Masters in Applied and Natural Science from MSU in Springfield. I have taught a variety of sciences at Buffalo High School. Most recently, I have taught Biology, Chemistry, Chemistry 2, Physics, and Dual Credit Biology through MSU.

     If I have your student and you need to talk to me, there are a variety of tools at your disposal. I check my email several times a day. You can reach me there at You can also reach me by phone at 345-2223 ext 3117, but please keep in mind that I can't discuss your student while I am teaching a class. You may access your students grades through the parent portal of SIS or ask them to log into Canvas and check the grades tab. Your student has access to their classwork through Canvas. On their homepage there is a button that says jump to today. That button will take them to the current days lesson. It may include notes, bellwork, assignments, reminders, or a note to continue what they were previously working on. They also have access to their current grades on the grades tab in Canvas. The grades tab may show missing work that does not show up yet on SIS. 

     If I don't have your student, the most expedient way to contact me is through email. I look forward to hearing from you.
