“Dr. Johnson helped me find myself”

Dr. Johnson is the greatest teacher I ever had. I wish everyone had a chance to attend his training. Dr. Johnson helped me find myself. Dr. Johnson had a way of bringing the classroom together by facilitating an awareness and understanding of racial issues in society. He is very passionate in the topics he teaches and he provided a safe and welcoming environment in which students were comfortable asking difficult questions, sharing experiences, and exploring new topics. His passion fueled passion in his students.
