My name is Tanya Johnson. I am a resident of Bath County, but originally from Knott County in Eastern Kentucky. I am married to my wonderful husband, Neil Johnson. Neil is a Lieutenant with the Kentucky State Police and we both attended the same high school and were best friends a very long time ago.
This is my 17th year teaching and my 16th year at OES. I have also been the Drama Club Coach for the last 5 years and look forward to another great year of theatre! This is my first year teaching 1st grade. I have taught 3rd and 4th grades for many years and look forward to having the opportunity to teach the little ones!
I am also a proud parent of two college graduates. I have a 22-year-old daughter named Kaitlyn who recently was married to my new son-in-law, Curren. Kaitlyn graduated from Morehead State University and is a 2nd year nursing student at MSU. My son, Keegan, is 23-year-old graduate from the University of Kentucky and is a 2nd-year medical student at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Morehead State University. I also graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Morehead State University. In 2013, I earned my Rank 1 and National Boards Certification in the area of Middle Child Generalist.
I try to keep my students' families informed about what is going on at school through Class Dojo. Our 1st grade team uses Class Dojo for all communication about upcoming events, homework, assignments, parties, and more! Listed above is my contact information, and you can reach me during my planning time every weekday or through email; however Class Dojo is the fastest and easiest way to reach me. I look forward to meeting and working with all my new students and their families this year.
