About Cornelia Johnson

  • Cornelia JohnsonHello and my name is Cornelia Johnson or Nurse Johnson. I have been the school nurse at Lincoln Elementary School since February of 2022.

    I graduated from Harper College and received a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Goshen College in Indiana.

    Most of my nursing career has been at Northwest Community Hospital in Pediatrics and I also worked in Postpartum and NICU. Working overseas in Haiti for 2½ years and doing some research work on Asthma are highlights of my career.

    I was raised in an immigrant family. When I entered Kindergarten as a 5 yr old, the only English words I knew were “please” and “thank you” because German was the language spoken at home. I am married to Toby, a retired letter carrier who is also one of the bus drivers for the District. I have two adult children; my son lives in Streamwood and my daughter lives at home. 

    I am beginning to learn Spanish, and I also enjoy  gardening, visiting museums and traveling to see relatives. 

    I am looking forward to the 22/23 year at Lincoln as the school nurse. Feel free to call me or stop by the office at Lincoln school anytime!
