Teacher of the Year 2021-2022
Ms. Deirdre Johnson, Harmony School of Technology
My name is Deirdre Johnson, and I am blessed and honored to be selected as Teacher of the Year of Harmony School of Technology (HSOT). I am a mother of four wonderful children, Whitney, Bayley, Dillon, and Micah. Blue, the family’s dog, is a new addition to the family. I am from Dallas, Texas, and moved to Houston after graduating from the University of Houston in 1995 (with a Bachelor of Business Administration). I also have the following degrees, a Master of Education and a Master of Public Administration.
I currently serve on the Parent Association Board at The Kinkaid School and one of the advisors of HSOT’s Student Council. I volunteer with the Greater Houston Track Club and The Stafford Cobras Youth Football League yearly. I have worked with children since 2002. I taught Math, English, and Science at the JJAEP for nine years, served as a Juvenile Probation Officer for six years, and previously served in the role of a Discipline Support Staff at Harmony for four years. My new role this year as an eighth-grade English teacher has been very rewarding. I value teaching my students and learning from them. I enjoy caring about my students’ academic and social needs beyond the classroom. My rapport with my students and their families has contributed to my success at HSOT. I am forever grateful for all of my accomplishments thus far.
