For Wesley Johnson, it began in his hometown of Denmark, Tennessee. He began displaying his passion for music and various talents at an early age, hired as a musician/director by the age of 9. Wesley began playing the piano and taught himself how to play the organ. When his family decided to move their membership to another church, Wesley accepted the assignment of Minister of Music at New St. Luke Baptist Church, in Jackson, TN for ten years.

Currently working as a lead educator at Promise Academy Charter School in Memphis, TN, he recently obtained his Masters of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Memphis. It is his belief that through a proper education, a student will receive the necessary skills that are necessary to construct a life that it successful and flourishing. Every child deserves a secure, nurturing, and engaging atmosphere in which to grow and mature intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.
