All About Me!

My name is Mrs. Johnson! I am the new music teacher and I am SOOOOOO excited about getting to know all of you! Music has been a part of my life since I was 4 years old! I started with singing, then moved to piano a few years later. I have also played percussion since I was in 6th grade and have done many many musicals in my schools and communities! One of my proudest achievements was playing trombone and piano for 3 years with the Pride of The Mountians Marching Band at Western Carolina University! Go Cats!! My husband and I are currently providing music at my church, Dudley Shoals Baptist, during our social distancing/CO-VID time period. Other than that, I have 4 cats, 1 chihuahua, and an absolutely adorable 2 1/2 year old daughter! I can not wait to meet you all! :)

Education

I am a PROUD alumnae of Western Carolina University, class of 2014! I graduated with a Bachelor of science in education and a Bachelor of Music with a minor of Philosophy! I participated in the Marching Band, Symphony Band, Community Band, Concert Choir, Community Choir, Catamount Singers and Electric Soul and the Theatre program!

Favorite Music Genre

COUNTRY! I am a southern girl with a heart for country music. I love Martina Mcbride, Reba Mcentire, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Billy Currington, Rascal Flatts and Dolly Parton!

I always dreamed of being a country singer, but I was called to teaching and I know this is where I belong. But I do still sing country quite often! :)
