Mrs. Johnson

Hello IES Families! I’m Mrs. Connie Johnson and I have been the Media Assistant at IES since 2000. My degree is in Elementary Education from the University of Iowa with a specialization in reading. I love children and books so I’m delighted to get to know your children and see them grow as readers! Prior to my time at IES, I taught pre-school, first, and second grade in Iowa, Texas, and South Carolina. I’ve been honored as IES Substitute of the Year, IES Support Employee of the Year, and as an SCASL Media Paraprofessional.

 

My husband, Mitchell, and I have two grown sons, Micah and Joshua. I enjoy volunteering in my church Fellowship Bible with Good News Club. I have the privilege of meeting and helping refugee families from all over the world as they resettle in Columbia. I also enjoy reading, watching movies, and spending time with friends.
