Dr. Johnson shared, “I am looking forward to the opportunity to affect change and policy to better meet the needs of all students, especially those who struggle in traditional education models. In the midst of a crisis, there is no better time to lead.”

An alum of the Educational Leadership doctoral program, Dr. Johnson “appreciated the opportunity to be taught by former superintendents Dr. Scott and Dr. Slater, who provided invaluable perspective. I find that only those who have lived leadership, truly understand how to teach it.”
