Ms. Guyniesha Johnson, Principal


Ms. Johnson previously served as an assistant principal at Quitman County Elementary in the Quitman County School District. She began her career in 2008 as a 3rd-grade teacher at James C. Rosser Elementary School in Moorehead, Mississippi. She helped students improve two grade levels in reading and math in eight months of instruction. She also developed and implemented a math remediation curriculum that resulted in a 70% passing rate on end-of-year assessments among the 41 students she served.

After moving to Quitman County Elementary, she was entrusted with facilitating schoolwide professional development on math best practices and differentiated instruction. Her efforts led to 93% of 3rd and 4th grade scholars in Transition-Accelerated classes scoring Proficient or Advanced on state-mandated assessments. As she moved up from math coach to assistant principal, she gained experience implementing the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Program for Quitman County Elementary. Over the course of her career, she has elevated the profession through her involvement in Teach for America.

Ms. Johnson has a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and African American Studies from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership from Teachers College at Columbia University in New York, and a Specialist in Education for Curriculum and Instruction from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro.
