5-Year-Old Girl Teaches Class at State College: 'Some Students Were Bad and Some Were Not'
This 5-year-old girl wants to be a teacher when she grows up, and this Louisiana college has allowed her to achieve her dream a little early.
Jourenii Johnson, 5, was invited to lead a class at Grambling State University last week.
“I was going to teach them math, but some people were bad, and some were not,” she explained, in an interview with affiliate KNOE.
Instead, she paced up and down the classroom, and taught college students the importance of proper uniform, and made sure hats were not being worn in the classroom. She also warned students to put their phones away, or she would take them.
There were also lessons about how to treat each other.
“Bullying,” she added, “that’s one thing we’re taught we’re not supposed to do.”
Jourenii was able to experience what life would be like as a college-level professor as a part of the “Amazingly Authentic Confidence” program, to help foster a sense of self-esteem into girls between 5 and 19 years old.
A representative explained those are the ages when girls are the most vulnerable.
