TC Donor: Beverly Elmyra Johnson
(M.A. '86)

Beverly Elmyra Johnson (M.A. ’86)

Former elementary and middle school guidance counselor, kindergarten teacher and education professor; TC Alumni Council, Campaign Committee and John Dewey Circle member.

Favorite TC Professors

Joseph Grannis, Ray McDermott, Hervé Varenne; George Bereday, for legitimizing me as a writer on education; Hope Leichter and Douglas Sloan, for encouraging me to learn in different areas.

Key TC Experience

The interdisciplinary freedom of my department, Family & Community Education. As a guidance counselor I was creative in drawing on it all, incorporating literacy theory and decorating my office with mobiles and puppets so kids felt comfortable.

Why I Support TC

TC opened up a whole world for me and gave me confidence. No one took me by the hand. I was allowed to do my work. I learned to embrace new challenges, and I developed my leadership skills.
