Tiffany Johnson was born in Chicago and raised in the south suburbs where she attended Homewood-Flossmoor High School. After graduation, she attended Illinois State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. During her time there, Tiffany joined The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation, which was an organization that linked her with minorities in the STEM fields and awarded her scholarships and mentorship opportunities. Her interest in teaching began in high school and carried her away to her favorite place, New York! Tiffany taught 6th grade science to a group of brilliant boys in the historic neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant (Bed-Stuy) Brooklyn. She is excited to return back to her roots in Chicago where she teaches 9th grade Biology in the south side neighborhood of Auburn Gresham. She looks forward to bringing her skills to ensure there is a strong culture of achievement and a fearless interest in the STEM fields. In her spare time, Tiffany enjoys traveling, Netflix, reading, and spending time with her son and friends.
