Mrs. Amy Johnson
This is my fourth year teaching in PISD after moving from Paola, Kansas, four years ago in July. (Go Jayhawks! Go Royals! Go Chiefs!) This year I will be teaching 5th grade science and math after spending my first three years here teaching 3rd grade.
My husband, Jeff, and I are the proud parents of four children. Courtney and Kyle, 26 and 24, are busy adulting; Courtney here in Texas and Kyle back in Kansas City. Aly, 23, is starting law school this year at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. Luke, 19, a 2019 Prosper High School graduate, is playing baseball at Northeast Texas Community College. As a parent of four, I can empathize with all of the emotions--highs and lows--and powerful love we all have for our children.
My parents were both educators and my dad was a high school football coach. Family, education, and athletics are engrained in the fiber of my being!
I am thrilled to be spending my 14th year in education learning with 5th graders. Across my nine years of teaching at Holy Trinity Catholic School in Paola, I taught all of the content areas in one combination or another across all grades, from 3rd through 8th. I also served as the Associate Principal at Holy Trinity Catholic School in Lenexa for two years, a 2015 Kansas Governor's Award School.
I look forward to growing and learning, with all its joys and struggles, with my Rucker family as we create our futures this school year!
