Ask Brynn Johnson what she does for a living, and she may tell you that she is a teacher. Or maybe, she will tell you that she is a global curriculum designer, a multi-continental traveler, or an Arctic scientific researcher. She has, after all, worn each of these titles during her career as an educator.
Johnson, an ACE 14 Teaching Fellows graduate, recently earned The Michael Pressley Award for Excellence in Catholic Education for her commitment to instilling in her students a spirit for exploration and environmental responsibility. Johnson currently serves as a middle school math teacher at the all-female Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans, but her teaching journey began in Birmingham, AL, where she taught fourth grade at Holy Family Elementary School.
