2022-2023 School Year
My name is Kathi Johnson and I am a learning specialist. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year. Our classroom is very fortunate to have two amazing paraprofessionals, Brittany Goss and Halie Ramirez. I look forward to helping your child grow and equip them with learning tools that they can take with them on their future learning journey. I believe all children can learn and thrive with the right support and tools. I also believe the more we work together, the more your child will succeed!
This is my 19th year teaching. I have an associate degree in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from the University of New Orleans with an Early Childhood Bachelors degree. I have furthered my education by earning my Masters degree in teaching English Language Learners from Walden University. I have returned to Walden to work on my Doctoral degree in Early Childhood/Special Education Leadership. I am certified in Early Childhood through 4th, (ESL) English as a Second Language and Special Education PreK-12. I am also trained in ABA, Autism, social and emotional behaviors and continue my education in yearly training workshops.
When I am not at school teaching, you can find me at Barnes & Noble ( I am a certified book nut.)
A few more of my favorite things besides teaching:
I enjoy sitting outside late at night and looking up at the night sky.
I enjoy movies and music.
Lavender and rose-scented candles.
My favorite color is green.
My favorite restaurants are Pei Wei and Outback.
Favorite treats: York Peppermint Patti and Cheez-It Crackers
I like to paint, draw, knit, needlepoint and write (so I like all kinds of fancy pencils and pens).
I will do my best to keep you informed about what is going on with your child's learning experiences and how you may help extend their learning at home. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. My door is always open if you have any concerns or positive input. My conference time is from 1:45pm to 2:45pm. We can make arrangements to speak by phone, meet after school or schedule a Zoom meeting. You can contact the school at 940-668-0036. I will return your call as soon as possible when children are not in my classroom.
Communication is the KEY! Let's keep our lines of communication open for the benefit of your child. We, together, can make your child's school year successful. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.
