Ms. Melissa Johnson
My name is Melissa Johnson and I am the Integrated Pre-K Classroom Teacher here at Stix ECC!
I grew up on the Illinois side of St. Louis as the second of four kids. I have an older sister, Michelle, a younger brother, Corey, and a younger sister, Megan. Both of my sisters are also teachers in Illinois! After graduating from Cahokia High School, I attended Southwestern Illinois College and earned my Associates in Arts degree and then recieved my Bachelors of Science in Education from Harris-Stowe State University where I specialized in Secondary Social Sciences and played left fullback for their women's soccer team. After graduation, I gained teaching experience as a district substitite for University City School District, taught at a private early childcare facility specializing with a classroom of 2 year olds, and taught social studies in an alternative high school for students in Riverview Gardens and Hazelwood School Districts. This will be my 6th year as a teacher at Stix ECC and I'm so excited to see my old Fish Friends and make new ones!
When I am not teaching I enojy traveling to visit friends in Nashville, TN and Chicago, IL, going to concerts, and playing with my dog, Fallon.
