Lake-Sumter Community College


Joan Johnson

Hello Students, My name is Ms. Joan Johnson; I am a full-time instructor at Lake-Sumter State College. I have been teaching at Lake-Sumter for nearly 25 years. I teach Computer Science courses. I started here as a student with a student assistant position in the computer lab.

I single handedly raised 6 daughters; several of them  graduated from Lake-Sumter and others are currently working on a degree. Two of my daughters have their MBA from St. Leo University. My oldest granddaughter graduated from LSSC & UCF and is teaching in Clermont. I have 12 grandchildren; nine of them are boys. I also have a great‑granddaughter who will turne 5 in Sept of 2016 and a great-grandson who turned one Feb. 2017

I love to teach, have an intellectual discussion, and answer questions. As with many courses, homework is just one component of the class. It is important to keep up with the homework and to read the book in order to earn a high passing grade.
