We Love to tell the Story

December 18, 2020 | Nathan Johnson

How many ways are there to share the story?


We read it to each other…

We act it out in Drama …

We draw the story with markers and crayons!

We tell about the Shepherds and the sheep …


We tell about the Angels …

“Don’t be afraid!”

And the Star!

“Follow the star!”

We tell about the Wise Men…


We tell about Mary and Joseph … and the Donkey!

Knock knock knock! Any room in the Inn?

And about the Baby… 

He is Jesus Christ the Lord!

Merry Christmas, Rivers Class Families!

PS — In case you missed it,

here is one last way we told the story

Nathan Johnson

Rivers Class Assistant Teacher & Lower School Visual Art Teacher

Nathan Johnson graduated in 2004 from Lenoir-Rhyne University with a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts (focusing on Illustration, Art History, and Puppetry), Theatre, and Elementary Education, followed by further time in Europe studying Art, and in Nova Scotia working with adults with developmental differences.

Happily back at his Alma mater (MSS class of 1995) Nathan has passionately committed his career to preserving the dignity and wonder of childhood. As children are more and more burdened with technology and privilege, he believes that in order for children to learn and grow, they must be given freedom within structure, choices with guidance, allowed to play, struggle, get dirty, and above all, for each child to be taught that they are a beloved child of God.

When not in the classroom, Nathan can be found kayaking, camping, hosting a game night, wandering around New York City, making friends with strangers, and spending time with his 11 nieces and nephews.
