About Jessey Johnson
Dear Parents and Students,
It is my great pleasure to serve the community here at Kyrene de la Estrella. My career began here in Kyrene after graduating from Arizona State University. (Go Devils) I spent my first 7 years in the Kyrene School District teaching 6th Grade Math at Aprende Middle School. While I was at Aprende I worked on my Masters in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona State University and just before my graduation I was given the opportunity to enter the administrative side of the school district. For three years I was a Program Supervisor in the Community Education and Outreach Services division at the Kyrene District Office. I spent my time there overseeing before and after school enrichment programs, preschool programs, and summer academy. In addition to this, I was the coordinator for two of the districts signature programs C.A.S.A Vida the district's home school support program and the Montessori Preschool. My next administrative experience was at Kyrene College Preparatory Academy as the 6th Grade Student Advisor. I served there for two years and enjoyed my time immensely. This was followed by a move back to Aprende Middle School as the 7th Grade Dean of Students. Most recently I was serving the Estrella community as the assistant principal and now I am very excited to continue my service here as the proud principal of Estrella.
My commitment to serving the community and my love of teaching are the strengths that I bring to this position. My experience with advanced curricular studies and community based programs provide a wide area of expertise to offer Estrella. It is my belief that all students can benefit from academic challenges and high expectations. With that I also believe that students (as well as all people) deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. You can expect to find me in classrooms working with students and teachers, doing lunch duty, engaging with students during passing periods, and at extracurricular activities. If you do need to contact me I will be more than happy to assist you. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you.
I certainly hope you choose Estrella for your child's education!
