Our Stories

Click on the names of our staff members below to read their own adult learner stories.

Jaymi Johnston earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education at the University of Southern Indiana in 1998. Since then, she has worked throughout the tri-state area in various elementary and middle school classrooms as a special education and substitute teacher.

Jaymi knows firsthand how challenging it can be to juggle higher education while working full-time and supporting a family. After receiving her bachelor’s, she proceeded to work toward a graduate degree at USI. Despite some pauses along the way, Jaymi proudly earned her master’s degree in education in 2013.

“The pride I felt having the people I love most cheering as I walked across the commencement stage was amazing. I'll never forget my children holding a poster that read: ‘Way to go, Mom! We love you!’”
