Assistant Principal - Allison Johnson

                                                                     Mrs. Johnson, Assistant Principal

Hi! I am Allison Johnson, the Assistant Principal at Southwest Primary and Longview Elementary. I am originally from Wilkes County in the foothills of NC. My family and I moved to Catawba County in 2016. I am married with two children, a boy and a girl who are 6 and 10 years old, and a mommy to a poodle named Jake. I enjoy spending time outdoors, cooking, reading, music, and being with my family.

I am in my 17th year in education during the 2018-2019 school year. I earned my Master’s in Elementary Education and School Administration from Appalachian State University. Prior to coming to Hickory Public Schools in 2015,  I taught second, third, and fourth grade in Wilkes County. While in Hickory Public Schools, I have taught second grade, in addition to serving as Assistant Principal at Southwest Primary and Longview Elementary.

I am excited for the 2018-2019 school year. I believe that student learn best when students have high expectations, relationships with school staff, and know they are safe within the school. I am confident that all our students at Longview and Southwest will have those essential components in their learning this school year.  

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. My email is

For the 2018-2019 school year, my schedule is that I serve both schools each day. I am half days at both schools.
