Long-time educator takes new role in school system

Johnson served at Baker School for almost 26 years, working his way from teaching social studies to becoming a certified school counselor, assistant principal and then principal in 1997.

He left Baker to become principal of Crestview High School in 2002 before retiring five years later.

Following his retirement, Johnson served as Holt Academy's director for more than four years.  

He said he welcomed the call when newly elected school superintendent Mary Beth Jackson asked him to join the school system again.

"I found out that I had left before I wanted to," Johnson said. "When Mrs. Jackson asked me if I would be interested in coming back to work in the school system, to say I was excited was an understatement."
