About Cathy Johnston

Mary Catherine Johnston

I am a Spanish Teacher and a Kountze ISD teacher since 1983 with experience at all levels.  I received my Masters Degree from Lamar University and my Bachelors from the University of Houston.   I am committed to Service Learning through community involvement.  I have served as Past President of the Big Thicket Association and am active in the Thicket of Diversity All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory in partnership with the Big Thicket National Preserve.  I serve as Treasurer of the Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust and am a Charter member of the Friends of the Kountze Public Library.  I am a successful grant writer and enjoy writing in general.  As a supporter of the arts, I served as Past President of the Beaumont Ballet Theatre under the Artistic Direction of Miss Bonnie Cokinos.  I am a recipient of Reaud Excellence in Education Award 2010 and Mirabeau B. Lamar Education Award- Pine Lodge #642.  I have been married 40 years plus to Rick Michael Johnston and am a proud mother of four with six wonderful grandchildren. I absolutely love to travel and am currently studying Russian!

I am proud of my Costa Rican heritage. My mother, Aida Cordero Dyer,  immigrated here as a foreign exchange student. She was Goosecreek’s first bilingual teacher and taught for 32 years. I expect to have an exciting and challenging year as we integrate technology instruction with Spanish through Distance Learning and look forward to 30 years with Kountze ISD.
