Mrs. Colleen Graham
Hello and welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! My name is Colleen Graham and I am very excited to be a part of the Johnsonville School family and Reading Recovery Team. I began teaching in 1989 so this is my 34th year of teaching and each year has been a blessing in my life. I taught in a special education classroom for 8 years, and then made the switch to regular education, mainly in grades 3, 4, and 5 in Hoke and Robeson counties for 20 years. I took on a new challenge and for 6 years I served the students and teachers of Harnett County Schools as an Instructional Coach, where I was also trained in Reading Recovery. When given the opportunity to come back to Johnsonville AND teach Reading Recovery, I was overjoyed! This is my 5th year in my role as a Reading Recovery teacher.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Special Education from the University of Delaware and my Master's Degree in Special Education from Fayetteville State University. My wonderful husband and I have been married for 33 years and we have 4 amazing sons who fill our hearts with pride and joy.
