Mrs. Amy Johnson

Before joining the staff at St. John Nepomuk Catholic School in the fall of 2004, Amy Johnson worked in the 4-5 year old classroom in an after school program through a daycare while working on her undergraduate degree. During this time she fell in love with 4 and 5 year old children. They helped to communicate God's calling for her life. Amy received her Bachelor of Arts in English and her Master of Education in Early Childhood from University of Central Oklahoma. She holds a teaching certificate through the Oklahoma State Department of Education. In 2005, she was awarded the Wal-mart Teacher of the Year. Amy enjoys learning. She has been a member of NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and ECAO (Early Childhood Association of Oklahoma) since 2000. She attends many conferences. She spoke at the annual ECOA conference in 2007. She has presented at the annual Archdiocese of Oklahoma’s Spring In-Service training for the last five years. In 2014, she presented at the NCEA (National Catholic Educators Association) Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 2015, Amy had the opportunity to attend NASA and Oklahoma Space Grant Consortium’s Mission to Planet Earth at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. She also enjoys sharing her knowledge with others. Throughout her time at St. John Nepomuk she has hosted many Family Night events for her students and their families. Amy and her husband Dusty have two children. As a family they camp, visit history museums, State and National Parks and shoot archery. The archery is new for Mrs. Johnson. She is joining her family's love for the sport by learning something new this year. She also enjoys reading and scrapbooking. She volunteers as a leader of her daughter’s American Heritage Girls troop. When you step into the Pre-K 4 classroom you will find a room where children are allowed to explore, create, and learn at their own pace. Mrs. Johnson uses planned lessons and what the children are interested in to foster an innate love of learning, problem-solving, logic and literacy that reaches far beyond the standards taught. When the children leave her classroom they know that the were “fearfully and wonderfully made by a creator God who will never leave them nor forsake them.”
