Mrs. Amber Johnson
Hi! My name is Amber Johnson, and I am so excited to watch you grow and learn this year! As we begin this journey together, I thought you'd like to know a little about me. I'm 29 years old, and a Johnston County native. I graduated from North Johnston High school in 2009 and attended UNCW. While I was at UNCW, I majored in Psychology, but I also followed my passion for art. I always knew I liked to create art, but I was not very good at it. Seriously. Your art teacher was pretty terrible at art, ESPECIALLY drawing. I had a passion for it, though! I decided to take as many art courses as I could to learn as much as I could about art. I grew exponentially during that time because I committed myself to the work it would take to get better. I graduated in 2013 with a BA Psychology and a Studio Art minor. After graduation, I began working with children with special needs, and never looked back. I spent 5 years working with children with special needs, and then had the opportunity to move to Innovation Academy. However, the job wasn't for teaching students with special needs, it was for an art teacher. 2 years later, here I am! I have loved every minute of teaching art at Innovation Academy, even through all the challenges. I'm excited for all the successes and challenges this year will bring. We are in this TOGETHER!
