Biography and Professional Achievements

Kathy Johnson shares her passion for teaching with both undergraduate education students and alternative license students in the School of Education Professions. Having served 33 years in the elementary classroom, she is able to share her experiences with her students in a way that allows them to see practical experience and a love for teaching and learning. She is also a mentor to them, often staying in touch after they’ve completed their degree(s) from CCU

Having a heart for rural schools, Johnson is currently serving rural educators through Project LINK, a grant funded by the Colorado Department of Higher Education, putting the plan into action. This program “links” rural educators through professional learning communities. Johnson presents at local and national conferences sharing the needs of teachers for rural schools.

Johnson, her husband, and their two sons arrived in Grand Junction, Colorado, 20 years ago from California. They love spending time outdoors, exploring the trails of western Colorado, camping, and all sports.
