Deanna Johnson Participates in Read Across
Nashville, Tenn. – Deanna Johnson, wife of State Sen. Jack Johnson (R-Brentwood) read to first grade classes last week as a part of the Read Across America activities at Williamson County Schools.
“This is a great program, and I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it,” said Mrs. Johnson. “Jack and I have tried to instill in our children how important reading is. I hope we were able to convey the same message to these first grade classes.”
Read Across America celebrated the life of Dr. Seuss and his many books including “The Cat in the Hat”.
“As a father of three, my wife and I understand the value of reading to children,” said Sen. Johnson. “Reading is the foundation for learning. It is important for children to develop their learning skills at this early age.”
Mrs. Johnson visited first grade classes at Edmondson Elementary in Brentwood and Pinewood Elementary in Primm Springs on Friday, March 2.
