About Johnny

Hello! My name is Johnny and after serving in the United States Air Force as a Intelligence Specialist and I have moved back to New York. During my service, I volunteered in the community to personify the Air Force core value of "Service before self". One of the most rewarding experience was working with 4th through 6th grader as Merrimack Elementary school. I worked with children that had been seen struggle with the new lessons and failing behind the curve. After having the initial meet and greet, I formed a bond and understanding with the "young adults" and saw that it wasn't the information the didn't understand but the delivery method and the reward system of having a strong education and a vast repertoire of knowledge. With the five youths I worked with, there home room teacher saw a drastic improvement with in two weeks and each one of them (that had been a risk for falling behind with the exams) all passed with the class average or above!
Along with working with elementary school students during my military career I was hand-picked by leadership as Drill “ Black Rope” team Commander; trained over 60 Airmen in Standards, Customs and Courtesy for 11 competitions and won 22 trophies / coined at ISR CHIEF event. Tracked and maintained accountability holiday schedule for 500 Airmen Students leave status and completed forms/ ensured process ran efficiently. Elected Squadron Airmen Council Secretary; led stand-up effort/recruitment up 6 to 11; articulated the concerns of Junior enlisted members with professionalism. Completed 2 Qualification evaluations; scored 96% on each while merging into shift / forecast to be elite PED Command Controller. Finished 2 Career Development Courses Volumes in 6 weeks; ahead of schedule and on-time to complete first set 3 weeks earlier than appointed completion date. Volunteered 150 hours with AADD; stand by driver/dispatcher, organized safe transportation to prevent loss of life. Relay for Life / Polar Plunge pillar; helped raise 1.12 million dollars for Special Olympics/ American Cancer Society Volunteer. Dedicated 40 hours to Latin language CBT; Honored grammar/English skill set, broadened educational goals/ professional development.
I enjoy making learning more fun and building the want in a child to further explore the world of knowledge!
Thank you,
Johnny
