Meet Penny Johnson — Librarian/IMC
Why I love St. John School?
I love the caring atmosphere. Everyone is always willing to help one another out.
My favorite part of teaching?
I enjoy teaching students how to find information and develop independence in their researching skills. I love helping students and staff find the perfect books for their needs.
What I like to do outside of school?
My favorite hobby is dancing; I’ve taken tap and Polynesian dance lessons since I was 6 years old. I am in a Polynesian dance troupe that performs around the state. I like to read and watch videos, especially about military history. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.
