Our Teachers

Mrs. Jan Johnson – 3s Teacher

I am a mother of 3 (2 of whom attended the Co-op) and a grandmother of 2 (both of whom attended our school). I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from U.C. and have been at the Co-op for 31 years!! I love working with pre-school children and helping them to develop a love of learning. I want them to think that school is the best place to be, other than with their families. I also love gardening, sewing, reading, being outside doing anything and having my whole family come home at the same time!

Mrs. Kathy Curry – 4s Teacher

I have 2 grown children and 8 grandchildren (ranging in age from 2 to 14 years). My husband, Bob, and I have lived in Cincinnati (Finneytown) for 28 years. I have a degree in Kindergarten-Primary Education. I have taught kindergarten and first grade, and then in several different preschools. I have been at the Co-op for 28 years (and this is my very favorite preschool!) I love working with young children – and with their families. I believe that it is very important for children to know that they are loved, and that they can do whatever they put their mind to. I want them to love school and love learning, and I want them to leave our school confident and well-prepared for their next step.

* In my “spare time” I enjoy babysitting for my grandkids, playing my guitar, gardening, and participating in Bible Study Fellowship and Kairos Prison Ministry.
