Mrs. Sonya Velonis
My name is Sonya Velonis and this is my first year teaching at Johnson High School. My family and I moved here a year ago from Chandler, Arizona and so far it seems like a good fit for us! I am one of those that has always known that I was going to be a teacher. I love teaching all ages and subjects. After graduating from Arizona State, I taught at the elementary level for seven years. I took some time off to stay home with my two young daughters but then found myself missing being in the classroom so much that I started substituting for all different types of classes and grade levels. This is when I discovered how much I enjoy working with students that have special needs and disabilities. I am thrilled to be an ALE teacher at such an amazing school. I know that it's going to be a great year!
