Celeste Johnson, a retired teacher at the Volusia County Schools, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of education.

Ms. Johnson enjoyed a fulfilling career in education that spanned more than four decades. Bearing a great deal of expertise in reading and writing, as well as in improving overall literacy, she often found working with students who suffer from dyslexia particularly rewarding. In this capacity, she earned distinction as a teacher with the Volusia County School District in Florida from 1989 until her retirement in 2019. Previously, Ms. Johnson worked as a teacher in the state of Massachusetts between 1980 and 1989.

Having always aspired to become a teacher, Ms. Johnson was forced to surmount the challenges of dyslexia in her own right, and drew inspiration from her struggles to learn the science behind the condition. This spurred her to achieve success throughout the course of her career with students who live with the disorder. She initially studied education at Worcester State College, from which she earned a Bachelor of Science in 1971. Following this accomplishment, Ms. Johnson received a Master of Arts in English language and literature from Assumption College in 1984.

Well regarded for her indelible contributions to the field, Ms. Johnson has received numerous accolades, including recognition as the School Teacher of the Year in 1999. In accounting for her standout success, she credits her dedication to hard work, as well as her ability to consistently improve her abilities as a teacher. Looking toward the future, Ms. Johnson wishes to publish the works of her late friend, Georgia Howard, and preserve her legacy.
