What people are saying...

From Jennifer's Administration, Colleagues, Parents, and Students:

 

"So proud of my little cutie today. Today was the first day she was brave enough to stay at the preschool by herself. (For 1hr). She is very sensitive and introverted. It's a huge step for her. I didn't know what to do with myself for an hr. Lol. She goes to Humble Bee Preparatory School in Lakeshore. The teacher, Mrs. Jenn Johnson is awesome and Lauren trusts her so that is a large part of why I was able to leave for awhile. Lauren is holding a leaf that she later studied under a microscope. She is also learning to write her name and next week the will learn to plant their own veggies in the garden. This school is great and they have openings now."                                                    -L.L., Parent

 

“I have been an educator for 25 years, serving as a building administrator for the last twelve. During that time, I’ve had the opportunity to work with and learn from many excellent teachers. Of them all, however, Jennifer Johnson stands out as one of the best. On a daily basis, I am grateful that Mrs. Johnson is teaching English and Leadership to the students at Skyview High School."

-Kym TC, Administrator

 

“It would be difficult to put into words the tremendous impact she has had on me and the many other students that have been lucky enough to have her in their lives.”

-Kylie L, Student

 

“She is a teacher whose expectations are as high as her heart is big.”

-Kym TC, Administrator

 

“Mrs. Johnson goes the extra mile and encourages students to think for themselves and discuss their opinions when it comes to important issues in our world.”

-Megan P., Student

 

“Her creative and passionate instruction has inspired me to be a better person, serve others effectively, and to work harder at home, in school, and wherever I am able to in my life.”

-Kylie L., Student

 

“I have never met another person in my life who takes on so much with their job, a great deal more than what is expected, and is still able to show up every day with a smile their face, eager to start the day all over again.”

-Kylie L., Student

 

“We need to recognize excellence in educators. Jennifer Johnson has made all the difference in the lives of her students, and an especially significant difference in this important year of growth for my son.”

-Peggy G, Parent

 

“Her personality is infectious as she has the ability to connect with and lift the spirits of those around her.”

-Jay G, Counselor & Colleague

 

“She is an example of someone who loves what she does, is committed to kids, and does it for all the right reasons.”

-Kym TC, Administrator

 

“I cannot emphasize enough what a fabulous teacher Jennifer Johnson is.”

-Becky P, Administrator

 

“From the moment you walk into her classroom, you feel a sense of love and comfort. I have never had a teacher I have connected with as well as I have with Mrs. Johnson, and I speak on behalf of my peers to say that many students feel the same way as I do. I cannot fathom where I would be without her.”

-Megan P, Student

 

“Everything she has taught us has touched my heart and made me think.”

--Thomas G, Student

 

“Johnson is unique in her ability to make learning English fun and understandable to both the struggling and the gifted learner. Students who love English, are pushed and stretched and learn. Students, who hate English, leave Jenn’s class confident that they have and can continue to learn to be clear and effective communicators.”

-Kym TC, Administrator

 

“I see past, present, and even future students entrusting her with high school troubles and family issues. I know if I were in need of help she would be the first person I would talk to.”

-Megan P, Student

 

“She sincerely cares about what is going on in her student’s and player’s lives. I cannot think of another individual in my life that is as loving, generous, compassionate, optimistic, and sympathetic as Mrs. Johnson.”

-Carter J, Student & Athlete

 

“I have appreciated her firm expectations of best work and working through challenges. But I have also witnessed her sincere compassion and efforts to go above and beyond in offering support and kindness toward others. And in difficult times, knowing that my son was in this environment brought me great peace and comfort.”

-Peggy G, Parent

 

“To say that she is the best teacher in the world is an understatement. I can only hope that one day; I will be as family-oriented, dedicated, and compassionate as Mrs. Johnson.”

-Megan P, Student

 

“I was fortunate enough to have her as a coach, a teacher, and most of all, an incredible friend who will always have a place in my heart.”

-Carter J, Student & Athlete

 

"It seemed like there was nothing she wouldn’t do for me. Then after talking to some of my peers, it was obvious that she treated them the exact same way. She loved every single one of her students and was willing to put them before herself."

-Carter J, Student & Athlete

 

“Her tremendously large heart is seldom found in anyone else.”

-Kylie L, Student

 

“I didn’t think very highly of myself and expected very little, but Mrs. Johnson saw something in me. She kept pushing me and pushing me to be my very best.”

-Thomas G, Student

 

“I owe everything I am today to one of my greatest mentors, Mrs. Jennifer Johnson.”

-Carter J, Student & Athlete

 

“Students succeed because Jenn gives all of herself to ensuring that she is employing the most effective instructional strategies, preparing for every possible scenario, and establishing relationships with students that cause them to know that they are important, and that their learning is non-negotiable whether they are learning English, leadership, or college preparation skills.”

-Kym TC, Administrator

 

“The constant love and grace she barrages everyone that she meets with is truly incredible.”

-Anonymous Student

 

“She’s one of the most incredible, professional, independent, and strong women I’ve ever met. She has a gift and she loves to share it.”

-Carter J, Student & Athlete
