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.

As we prepare to take a short break from school for Spring Break, we want to express our gratitude to everyone who makes it possible for students to come to school every day, on time, and ready to learn.
● Our students and families for making daily attendance a priority. This habit of attendance will help them do well in the classroom.
● Our wonderful teachers pour their energy into making each classroom an exciting place for exploration and knowledge.
● Our support staff and community volunteers who provide extra hands and attention for our children’s needs.
We appreciate each one of you so much. We look forward to seeing you after spring break. Our campus will close from March 14-18, 2022. We will reopen Monday, March 21st at 7:00 a.m.
We know it is tempting to extend your vacation by a few days on either side of spring break. Please make sure that your child is at school every day, right up until spring break starts. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning.

Mientras nos preparamos para tomar un breve descanso de la escuela durante las vacaciones
de primavera, queremos expresar nuestro agradecimiento a todos los que hacen posible
que el mayor número de estudiantes vengan a la escuela todos los días, a tiempo, listos para aprender. Agradecemos:
● Nuestros estudiantes y familias hacen de la asistencia diaria una prioridad ya que saben que el hábito de asistencia les ayudará a tener un buen desempeño en el salón de clases y eventualmente en el trabajo.
● Nuestros maravillosos maestros ponen su energía en hacer de cada salón de clases un lugar emocionante para la exploración y el conocimiento para que los niños no quieran perderse el aprendizaje.
● Nuestro personal de apoyo y voluntarios de la comunidad brindan ayuda y la atención adicional que necesitan nuestros niños. Apreciamos mucho a cada uno de ustedes. Esperamos verlos después de las vacaciones de primavera. Recuerden que la escuela estará cerrada la semana del 14-18 de marzo del 2022, y reabre el lunes, 21 de marzo a las 7:00a.m.
Sabemos que es tentador extender sus vacaciones por unos días antes o después de la época festiva. Por lo tanto, asegúrese que su hijo venga a la escuela todos los días hasta que las vacaciones inicien. Nuestros maestros enseñarán y nuestros estudiantes aprenderán. Pero es difícil enseñar y aprender cuando muchos estudiantes están ausentes.

Each school year, thousands of families submit their application to become a part of Harmony Public Schools.
Here’s how we select applicants for enrollment each year to make sure each applicant has an equal opportunity to become our next high-achieving Harmony scholar.
Each January, we ask current families to let us know if they’ll be coming back to Harmony next year. This is called “Re-Enrollment.”
Based on the number of students returning next year and the number of classes in each grade level, we determine how many open spots we will have for new students.
Meanwhile, new families are submitting their applications during our annual Open Enrollment season, which runs from November 1 through February 10 each year.
After February 10, if the number of new applicants is greater than the number of available spots we have, Harmony holds a “blind lottery” to make sure all applicants have a fair opportunity to be seated.
Families of students selected for enrollment are notified. Those not selected are put on a “waitlist” and contacted as soon as a spot opens up.
… and that’s it!
Here are some answers to our applicants’ most frequently asked questions.
#1 – IS THERE ALWAYS A LOTTERY?
Not always, but often.
Whether a lottery is needed is determined by the number of spots available at each grade level and the number of eligible applicants interested in them.
#2 – I WAS SELECTED FOR ENROLLMENT –
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO NEXT?
Most importantly, we need you to officially accept the spot (a link will be provided on the acceptance letter). Then, between now and next fall, you’ll need to officially register your child and provide a few documents verifying their identity and home address.
After that, we’ll see you on the first day of school!
(Note: If you were accepted by more than one campus, please register at your preferred campus and decline the invitation of any others. This will allow us to offer those spots to another prospective Harmony family.)
#3 – I WAS PLACED ON A WAITLIST –
IS THERE ANY CHANCE I WILL GET TO ATTEND?
Absolutely – so don’t give up hope! Students initially placed on a waitlist are given the opportunity to enroll all the time at Harmony, often for one of the following reasons:
- A student who was initially selected in the lottery didn’t completion registration by the deadline.
- A student who was initially selected in the lottery moved away.
- A student was selected by two schools in the lottery, but of course could only register at one.
- We added an an extra class at the grade level for which you applied.
- One of our nearby campuses had an opening,
and reached out to see if you were interested in attending there.
Reach out to us on Let’s Talk to let us know how we can help!

Dear Parents and Students,
As we have done in the past, students have the opportunity to earn positive behavior points. Students can earn positive behavior points by showing respect, responsibility, readiness to learn, and achievement. Examples may include completing assignments and turning them in on time, having all material ready, participating in class, and following classroom rules.
You may access students’ PBA (Positive Behavior) points by using Skyward.
- Click on PBA (Positive Behavior) icon found in the bottom row on the right side to see how many points the student has earned.
- Use the catalog and order form along with your PBA points to purchase the items that you would like that are found in the school newsletter. You may place your order at any time during the school year.
- You may spend all or some of your points at any time, or you may choose to save them. It is your choice.
