Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lori Johnson
I attended Illinois State University and received a teaching certificate in special education. I taught for six years in Bartonville, IL. My classroom was self-contained and a resource classroom for students in fifth through eighth grades, and I was an inclusion facilitator in District 204 for two years. I then made the professional choice to stay home and raise my family. I ran a state licensed daycare from 2001-12. In August 2012, I returned to teaching and worked as a paraprofessional and long-term substitute at Opportunity School in Oswego. In 2013, I began working in our SKILLS program first at Thompson then at Bednarcik. I love working with students and am looking forward to another great year.
