Michelle Johnson

I have been a Professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Mt. SAC since 1987.  Before teaching at Mt. SAC I taught at La Puente High School and worked as an actuary.  I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics, a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from University California at Irvine.

I have always loved math and teaching.  After more than 30 years of teaching, I still believe my goal is to share my love of math and the importance of education with my students.


I am so excited that you have decided to take Elementary Statistics with Support ! Your success is important to me, so to help prepare you for the next part of your educational journey, I would like to share some information with you about my courses and classroom environments.

Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful. The name by which we choose to be called represents who we are. I recognize that calling students by their preferred name is crucial to ensuring that the classroom environment (whether in person or online) is a safe and inclusive space for learning. If you have a preferred first name that you would like me to use, or would like to share your pronouns with me, please feel free to let me know!


Please make sure to log in to your Canvas courses daily to keep up with all announcements, materials, and due dates. Canvas can be accessed through your Mt. SAC portal or at https://mtsac.instructure.com.


My office hours will be held on-campus and via Zoom sessions and discussion threads on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. You are welcome to contact me for appointment availability. I look forward to working with everyone, and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
