Miss Tia Johnson
As a former Homestead student, I am excited to be back at our school as the general music teacher! After graduating from Oswego East High School, I attended North Central College in Naperville, IL where I received my B.A. in Music Education and the University of Kansas where I received my Master's of Science Education in Curriculum & Instruction. I currently am serving on two district committees: the Elementary Music Curriculum Review Team and our SD 308 Music Program Review Team. I am excited to be representing our music team in this capacity, as it allows me to share all of the wonderful work our students do here at Homestead to help inspire our district vision for our music program.
I have also had the pleasure of teaching private music lessons to many students throught the district, performing on harp and saxophone with many community organizations such as the Fox Valley Orchestra and Limelight theatre, and helping out with beginning summer band in SD308 for over 12 years.
