Clara Johnson

Preschool Plus and STEM Friday teacher
Greetings Preschool Families,
I am honored to continue to be part of the Lake Harriet Preschool team as your Preschool Plus and STEM Fridays Teacher! I am a licensed K-6 teacher with a bachelor of science degree in Elementary Education, an early childhood emphasis and a STEM certification. I previously taught Kindergarten in Southern MN and have been a substitute teacher for Lake Harriet Preschool as well as the Preschool Plus Teacher (previously called Extended Day). I live in South Minneapolis with my husband, Ryan, who is a 2nd grade teacher, our daughter, Carol, who is 8 (and a preschool alumni), and our dog, Hank. In my free time I love traveling, exploring, hiking, and playing outside with my family and friends.
I am so excited to get to know all the families at Lake Harriet Preschool by exploring, learning, and having fun with the kiddos in the Preschool Plus and STEM Fridays programs!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns through Brightwheel or email me at
