Mrs. Melissa S. Johns

I am the counselor for the Early College High School program here at Karnes City High School.  I will also instruct RTI English groups this year.  In the fall, I am the professor for Education 1300, a dual credit education course.  I recently wrapped up my 11th year in education.  Before becoming a counselor, I taught Spanish I, Communication Applications, Journalism, and English II at KCHS.  I proudly coach UIL speech and debate along with my colleague and brother Mr. Soliz.  When I'm not counseling or coaching, you can find me baking, running, reading, or spending time with my family.

Please log on to Blackboard and make sure your account is up and running.  Since we have been pushed back due to the network issues as well as the postponement of classes, your deadlines and assignments will be adjusted.  You are in no rush to log on.  If you could do so by this week, that would be ideal.  If you are unable to log in due to password issues, please email Erica Castillo at  

As far as face to face class is concerned, KCHS is going to take it day by day and respond accordingly.  Thank you for your patience!  

If you have direct questions for me, please email
