“My name is Marcy Johns & have lived in McKinney for 6 years now. In college, I studied Journalism at Tyler Junior College where I received an AA in Journalism, then transferred to UNT in Denton in 1999 where I received my BA in Broadcast Journalism. After getting my degree, I went back to get certified as a teacher where I taught for 6 year in Prosper, Texas. I taught 7th & 8th grade Journalism & enjoyed teaching what I love so much to that particular age group. Our class produced the school newspaper, as well as the school’s yearbook.
I have a 5 year old daughter, named Kennedy & a 3 year old son, named Kason. With that said, I’ve been a stay at home mom the past 5 years. Nothing prepares you for being a full-time mom & have been blessed to have stayed home with my two little cuties, but I’ve missed writing.
This experience writing for ON THE SQUARE Blog combines 2 things I love: writing & living in McKinney. I love spending time on the square, whether it’s going into a few of my favorite shops like Giggle Brush or Pumps or eating at Patina Green or Sauce. Excited doesn’t describe being able to write for this blog, I’m thankful & eager to start.”
