Hello, My name is Melendy Johnson.
I have been a Teacher at The Little Shepherd since 2015, and currently act as an administrator in the office, and website maintenance. I have served many roles here as a substitute, an art/music teacher, and a janitor at one point. My teaching resume includes second grade at a small christian school in Massachusetts, Teacher Assistant in the Providence Public Schools, Sunday school teacher here at Phillips, as well as the Children's choir director from 2003-2005. I have an Associates Degree from CCRI in Special Education, and Early Childhood Certificate, and I am currently enrolled at Rhode Island College to complete my BM in Music Education and BA in Music. I am also a volunteer Assistant Coach for the CLCF Track and Field program, Head Coach for the CLCF Cross Country Program, and a volunteer coach within the Cranston Schools. I find coaching to be an extension of my teaching, and something I am extremely proud of.
My husband Stephen and I have been married since 2002, and we have 3 sons. Caleb, Logan and Aaron. They love reading, drawing, running, and acting. We have a dog, Ginger who keeps us all on our toes, and we all love to vacation at the ocean, and going to Disney.
In my spare time I enjoy beach and pool days with friends, running long distance races, Learning new skills (and sharpening old ones), reading, photography, singing, drawing, painting, seeing off Broadway productions, trying new foods, and taking in Nature. I believe that this life we live is only lived once and we need to take in everything we can!
