I am married to my high school sweetheart, Terry Johnson. We have two daughters. Christian graduated from ECP in 2003 and ECU in 2008. She teaches Chemistry and Biology in Calvin, Oklahoma.
Kayla graduated from ECP in 2013 and is a senior Early Education major at UCO. I also have custody of one grand-dog, a corgi, named Ozzie Socks Frodo Johnson.
When not teaching I enjoy beading, traveling and, of course, SCUBA diving and exploring the coral reefs of the world. I also enjoy attending national conferences and bringing the world back to my awesome students.
Let me tell you a story....
