Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Johnny Lin, TAG Resource Teacher

Johnny Lin has been teaching at Samuel Tucker Elementary School for the past 10 years before joining the Naomi L. Brooks staff in 2020. He believes is that the goal of education is not to attain mere knowledge, but rather to acquire the critical thinking skills that allow children to access knowledge and understanding. A lifelong learner, he strives to build student-centered and relevant lessons that children can connect with.
Prior to teaching, Mr. Lin worked in the defense industry and mortgage banking and is also a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. In his spare time, he enjoys rock climbing, learning about history, and making 'nerdy' cool.
