Kay Johnson will head Desert Learning Center
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - After a nationwide search, The Desert Learning Center announced on Monday that Kay Johnson will be head of the school.

Johnson, an education leader and manager in elementary schools and non-profit organizations, joins the founding team to bring the school closer to opening day, Sept. 3, 2013.

Johnson brings a broad base of educational experiences and said she looks forward to the challenge and the opportunity to be a part of Desert Learning Center.

Johnson began her career in Oregon, teaching high school and college. She became the founding dean for the King George School in 1998 and served as head of school at the Riverside School and Saint Joseph's Episcopal School where she implemented international teacher-student exchanges.

Desert Learning Center is a not-for-profit private school scheduled to open in September on the Zion Lutheran campus, 721 E. Chanslorway. The school's mission is to combine students, parents, educators and the community in a caring, respectful environment using a challenging curriculum, and enrichment to create the independent thinkers and leaders of the future. Interested parents are encouraged to come to the next open house scheduled for April 11 at 5:30 p.m. A light supper will be served. Students and parents will be able to see learning materials and technology that will be used in the classrooms.
