  • Meet Ms. Johnson

    Ms. Johnson is Parkwood High School's new Behavior Based Therapist. Ms. Johnson not only enjoys the staff and students but the school as well. She says, " The staff and students seem to be very friendly and helpful. It seems to be a very pleasant and well organized high school." What drew her to her line of work is the fact that for over 25 years she worked at public schools in Chicago. When she moved to North Carolina five years ago she wanted to get back to working in the school system. She says that if she could have any other job it would be as a school social worker. Ms. Johnson is married with two adult children who live in Chicago. Her favorite hobby is traveling because she likes to learn and try new things from new and exciting places.
