English teacher Melissa Fite Johnson has also been at PHS for 12 years.
Before teaching at PHS, Fite Johnson got her masters degree and taught English 101 at a college level as a graduate assistant. Fite Johnson will continue teaching English at Lawrence High School. The decision to leave PHS was not an easy one for Fite Johnson.
“I’ve really loved my job,” Fite Johnson said.
Though it was not easy, Fite Johnson always daydreamed about moving to Lawrence.
“It was the first time I looked at postings in Lawrence. I thought there wouldn’t be anything, but I when I looked it up there was AP job in the town I wanted to live in,” Fite Johnson said. “It felt a little like fate.”
