A five-year-old took over a classroom at Grambling State University on Monday.

Jourenii Johnson wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She instructed a class and did a uniform check to make sure boys weren't wearing hats in class. She also told students to put their phones away or she'd take them.

She's taught the students about bullying and math. Also entertained them with her dance moves and graded them on how they acted while she was teaching.

It's part of program called Amazingly Authentic Confidence.

"I was going to teach them math, but some people were good and some were not. and bullying. that's the one thing we're taught we're not suppose to do," says Johnson.

Ulissa Edwards says it's all about teaching girls 5-19 to be confident and have self-esteem saying that's the age where girls are most vulnerable.
