Regional Teacher of the Year Anthony Johnson heads to Asia
SALISBURY — Johnsonville will continue its world tour in 2018.
Isenberg Elementary School fourth- and fifth-grade teacher Anthony Johnson will visit China thanks to Go Global N.C.
Johnson was told about the opportunity Tuesday morning.
“We’re offering great teachers like Anthony … a chance to have a multicultural experience,” said Nicholas Rau of Go Global N.C.
Johnson, who was named the 2016 district Teacher of the Year and 2017 Southwest Regional Teacher of the Year, will join the N.C. State Teacher of the Year and other regional teachers of the year on the trip.
For 12 days, the group will explore China and get a close look at its education system. Teachers will observe classrooms, teach classes, talk to government officials and learn about Chinese culture.
“I’m just blown away,” Johnson said.
Over the summer, Johnson traveled to Germany with Go Global N.C. and other district teachers of the year. He said the trip was “a life-changing experience” and that he is looking forward to the China trip.
