Mara Johnson

Learning Assistant

I am originally from Indianapolis but moved to Montana to attend the University of Montana. I spent 13 years teaching various grades in public schools throughout Western Montana. After 13 years as a classroom teacher and a cross-country move back to Indy, I was looking for a new opportunity outside of the traditional classroom setting – specifically within the nonprofit sector – that would still incorporate my passion for educational equity and community engagement. The mission of Brightlane Learning and the role of Education Support Coordinator was the perfect answer to that search.
