I worked for seven years as a teacher in California before moving to Colorado in 2004. While I stayed home with my boys for twelve years, I remained involved in education by substituting at SkyView. Luckily, the job of Registrar became available while on a long-term assignment and I joined SkyView full-time in 2016. I enjoy reading, gardening, movies, remodeling and traveling in my spare time.

I am originally from New York, which is where I moved back to and started teaching after graduating. I hold my B.S. and Masters both in Special Education. This is my eleventh year teaching, and I love being a part of the SkyView community! My husband and I recently welcomed our daughter Madelyn in May, and we’ve been having a great time learning how to be parents and watching her grow.

My bachelor's degree is from Colorado State University in Human Development and Family Studies, and my first master’s degree is from the University of Colorado in Early Childhood Special Education. Recently, I received a second master’s degree in Business Administration from the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver.
My career began in public PK-12 classrooms, and the journey that followed included master teaching/training, charter school start-up, and staff recruitment. In all, I have worked to create 17 new public charter schools across the nation serving all grade levels. This work includes the recruitment and development of governing boards, foundations, and building corporations, as well as related advocacy efforts, financial planning, operations, and facility acquisition/renovation. In addition, I have fifteen years of administrative and leadership experience, including consultant work managing local and state grant and evaluation programs. I worked for the Colorado League of Charter Schools for 5 years and for the Colorado Association of Charter School Authorizers for 2 years. Currently, I am serving as the Director of Finance, Operations, and Human Resources at SkyView Academy Charter School. I am a founder of SkyView, and both of my boys attended for 10 years.

¡Hola! I'm Sra. Johnson, and I get the pleasure of teaching Spanish 1B in the Middle School. I studied Spanish and Education at CU Boulder (Go Buffs), and this is my third year at SkyView. I could not be more excited to be part of this school and community. I love getting to spend my days practicing another language with students and learning about different cultures. You will also find me out on the field most days since I am the Middle School Cross Country and Track coach. In my free time, you will probably find me running in the mountains or trying out a new recipe. I love my job and am a proud SVA Hawks fan!

I have been at SkyView since 2018 as the 3rd-5th grade Literacy Interventionist. My passion is for struggling readers to achieve reading success. I have my Master of Education in Special Education with an emphasis on the Orton Gillingham approach to literacy instruction. I am grateful to be a part of the SVA community as a teacher and also as a parent, as all four of my children attend SkyView. In my free time, I enjoy reading, being outdoors, biking and skiing.
