an athletic coach? with Coach Johnson

an athletic coach? with Coach Johnson

Do I need school to be...


And we are starting with a great one. It’s no secret that I’m skeptical about people who put ‘Coach’ as their job title. Honestly, I think most of them are snake-oil salesmen and saleswomen. Well, Coach Johnson is not one of them and he sets the bar for a life-changing coach. Coach is a 10 year veteran teacher/Athletic Director that looks to build students sense of self and foster strong communication between parents and their children. A masters graduate from Sarah Lawrence College, he developed his love for block building and works with other teachers and schools to incorporate block building into their classroom programming. He is a Husband, a father, a coach and the host of Our Village Stories: Parenting through Passion and Grit.

On this interview we spoke about:

  • His experience as a student athlete
  • What sports can teach you about life
  • The coach that set him on this path
  • How opportunities come to those who do good work
  • How you know you succeeded as a Coach

Cameron’s recommendations:
Go watch how people played basketball before! Men and women, the OG ballers. Understand the strategy, it’s like chess.
