Welcome to Hook Elementary! 

A little about your principal:  I am a Troy graduate and attended Cookson Elementary.  My family roots run deep in Troy.   In fact, my great grandfather was the Chief of Police of Troy, and the first song my grandma taught me was the Troy Alma Mater! I graduated from Wright State University and the University of Dayton.  I am certified to teach K-8 and as a principal K-12.  I received my National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist. In my twenties, I taught in Colorado, Florida, and California and then returned home!  I have taught preschool, first, second, third, fourth, and sixth grades.  I have been an assistant principal and principal.  This year will be my 12th year at Hook!   I am married and have three grown children, a son, and two daughters.  My son and his wife blessed us with our first granddaughter.  She is such a joy!   My son and his family live in my childhood home!

We have an amazing staff at Hook Elementary who care very much about our students!   We are so thankful to be able to spend our days with your children.  I look forward to partnering with you to give them the best possible education!

 This is going to be an unusual year, but we are so excited to have our students back in the building.  We have put several extra safety measures in place for children this year.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!  I can be reached at 937-332-6760 or at

Best regards!

Mrs. Penny Johnson

Principal of Hook Elementary
