Donna Johnson works with the Early Math Collaborative, providing support for coaches who help teachers enhance their math content knowledge and reflective teaching practice.

Though she holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology, her passion for teaching and learning led her from engineering into education, where she has been involved in teaching children of all ages in nontraditional settings. She presents workshops that focus on children from birth to age five.
