My name is Amy Youngblood Johnson, and this is my 29th year of teaching!! I taught 2nd and 3rd grades in Birmingham City Schools from 1989-1999.  I began teaching Reading at OMS in 1999, and I have never wanted to leave!! I am the 6th grade Reading teacher, 6th grade Lead Teacher, Reading Department Head, and the coordinator of the School Wide Spelling Bee. I also serve on the CIP team and PST Team.

  I have one beautiful daughter who makes me so proud. She is 23, and is the assistant manager at a Finance Company. She is the light of my life!!  As of this summer, I have a son-in-law! Love them both SO MUCH! Our favorite things to do are cook out and hang out around my pool with each other and good friends!

My passions are Christ,  being a mom to my wonderful daughter, teaching, singing, and PLEXUS!!  I am currently a Gold Ambassador with Plexus Worldwide!!

I enjoy the beach, the mountains, staying home by my pool or by the fireplace with loved ones, cooking, grilling out, singing, reading and spending girl time with my daughter!!! I love Starbucks, Plexus and the Crimson Tide!! ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!
