Karl Johnson

Hello, Holy Family Grade School Community.    

My name is Coach Karl Johnson and this is my first year here at Holy Family Grade School. I am extremely excited about meeting the students, faculty, and staff as well as working with Dr. Suelto, Fr. Jim, Ms. Katharine Huntley (Vice-Principal), Mrs. Teresa Nelson (Athletic Director), and the other members of HFGS administration and faculty. This feels like a family community and I am glad that I was asked to join the Holy Family Community.

I am originally from Springfield, Ohio and completed my Bachelor of Science in Education at Bowling Green State University. I am a Pittsburgh Steelers, San Antonio Spurs, and LA Dodgers Fan. Live Jazz, Outdoor Concerts and Swap Meets are my favorite things to do.

I have taught for eleven years in the Orange County Diocese and nine years in San Diego private schools. I have coached Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Track/Field in my twenty years of teaching.  I have also had the pleasure going to the State Finals in Football and a part of two CIF Championships while at Francis Parker School.

My philosophy is to teach with passion, desire, and give life-long experiences. I will work with every student, from the lower skilled to the upper skilled, and will incorporate both exercising and conditioning which are vital parts of Physical Education. Sportsmanship and teamwork will be encouraged at all times.

Feel free to stop by my office and say hello. I can be reached at kjohnson@hfgsglendale.org, if you have any question or concerns. I am extremely excited and thank you, Holy Family for this great opportunity.
