She has 8 years of teaching experience within the Jackson Public School District  and has served in many roles including ELA academic tutor,  Third grade ELA Limited-Service Teacher, and Fourth grade Science Limited-Service Teacher. Ms. Johnson is currently serving as a Certified Music Teacher and Performance Arts Director at Johnson Elementary School where she has been there for the past 3 years and loves every minute of it.

I love teaching, especially music and ELA because knowing how to read can open many doors for our bright scholars, and if I can also get the scholar to love music and the opportunities that it brings, that would make my heart smile.  My hope for my scholars is that they will be equipped with the adequate tools I have given them to be successful in life and give back to their community as I have. There are many quotes that I live by but the two that apply the most to my journey of life are

"I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Has Strengthen Me" and  "I May Give Out But I Will Never Give Up on Reaching My Goals. "  

Music Makes The World Go Round!!  Where words fail, music speaks.
