Bright Futures

Ms. Johnston

I graduated from Western Illinois University with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  After graduating in 2013, I got hired here at Norwood!  I really enjoy teaching this age group and watching them learn new things each day! Outside of teaching I enjoy traveling, reading, watching movies, going to baseball games and spending time with my family and dogs.




My name is Debbie Otten and I am the teaching assistant for the Norwood Bright Futures program.  I started my career in 1993.  I love having the opportunity to support children & their families in becoming successful lifelong learners.  I enjoy watching them continue to grow at Norwood and beyond!!  My other loves are family, friends and my grandchildren.
