It is a pleasure to welcome Christy Johnson to CTN!  We are excited to have Christy join our small family here as Instructional Media Specialist.  Help me in welcoming and transitioning her into her new position.

She is not a New Yorker and hails from Memphis, Tennessee so she possesses a Southern hospitality demeanor welcoming to all. She resides in New York now, and will eventually get accustomed to New York traffic.

You can read Christy’s own letter of introduction below.

 Please allow me to introduce myself as a new employee of CTN. My name is Christy Johnson and I am working as the new Instructional Media Specialist.  I am writing this letter since I will be assuming responsibilities of Joanne Maselli, previous Instructional Media Specialist.  I have a background in teaching and training with a B.S.Ed. in Human Development and Learning and received my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction.  I previously worked for the Memphis City Schools System as a teacher and staff trainer, and was involved with the curriculum design and implementation of various programs.  I am very excited about all of the opportunities that will arise from CTN’s partnership with the schools of the diocese and look forward to working with teachers and administrators.

My goal as Instructional Media Specialist is to provide support with the CTN services provided to schools and to collaborate with teachers, tech coordinators, and administrators on ways to integrate technology into the classroom.  Throughout the upcoming school year, I will conduct workshops on all services provided by CTN, as well as e-learning and webinar opportunities aligned with CCSS to further encourage the use of technology in schools.  It is the hope of CTN to visit all schools in the diocese and get more schools onboard with technology integration to engage students.

I look forward to working with all of the incredible faculty members of the Diocese of Brooklyn.

Best regards,


Christy Johnson
