  • My name is Laura Johnson-Newell.  I am the AI (Auditory Impaired) Teacher at BIS.  I work with Deaf/hard of hearing students.  You will often find me in general education classrooms in 5th and 6th grade.  I am in my 30th year of teaching and my second year in Bastrop Independent School District.  I am so pleased to be part of this campus!
