Angela Johnson

5th Grade Teacher








I am proud to be an educator in the Diocese of Bridgeport and at The Catholic Academy of Stamford..


Though I was not raised in a Catholic household, I became a Catholic by choice and, in a sense, by adoption.  As an undergraduate at the University of Connecticut, I spent two years abroad in Florence, Italy to study the language and art.  Through this experience, I was greatly influenced by the Catholic faith and the Italian culture.  During this time, I also met my husband, Francesco.  After we married, I lived in Italy for fifteen years.  Several years ago, together with my three Italian born children, we relocated to Connecticut.


While living in Italy, I taught English to students of all ages, and grew to love teaching; particularly teaching children.  I enjoy sharing my experiences, faith and knowledge with my students.
