Mrs. Johnson

My name is Mrs. Johnson and I have been teaching third graders for 4 years, as well as English online through VIPKID for 3 years. I have certifications in elementary education, special education, as well as being a certified STEM instructor. I have my masters degree in curriculum and assessment! 

Teaching online is SO MUCH FUN and I am excited to get your child engaged online with various subjects. I believe in building a rapport with students in the classroom in order to foster a stronger relationship academically and understand their unique needs. I am a huge advocate for social, emotional learning as well. 

When I am not teaching, I enjoy exercising, going to the beach, and spending time with my husband, family, and two golden doodles! I cannot wait to see you in the Outschool classroom!

Jenny Gao

Hi! My name is Jenny Gao. I’ve been teaching since I was in high school. I used to volunteer in my local community to teach children Chinese. I was also a leadership intern for Camp Invention, a summer program focused on teaching STEM concepts to kids. In my free-time, you can find me making smoothie, reading a thought-provoking book, or trying to learn origami (with glue and tape of-course).
