Dan Johnson, Director
Dan Johnson, Director

I’ve been in education for over 23 years and have spent the past 17 years as a school director. Prior to my time in administration, I served as a classroom teacher and have taught every subject and every age from infants through high school! I received a dual M.A. in Secondary Education from the University of Alabama.

I love how the Montessori approach used here at Canterbury Academy at Briarcliff helps develop the whole child. As Maria Montessori said, “Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”
