Jeff Johnson, who holds a BA in History and a master's degree in special education, started as a special education teacher in Providence, R.I. at The Providence Center School and later at the MET high school in South Providence for five years. As a special educator he developed a real appreciation for the learning differences of all students and became an advocate for special education students in particular. Mr. Johnson also has a profound love of history and has since become a history teacher at The Greene School. He also has the privilege of running a economics class as well as being the coach of the school's robotics team. He has also served as a National Park Ranger on Mt. Rainier for a several seasons.
The Greene School embraces an educational discipline of 'learn-by-doing.' Known as EL Education (Expeditionary Learning), our approach is rooted in the idea that learning is active, challenging, meaningful, public, and collaborative. Our students grow academically and socially, become environmental stewards.
