Hi, my name is Alex Johnson. I was born in Blue Springs, Missouri and I attended all local public schools including Blue Springs High School where I played football and ran track. I went on to attend college at the University of Central Missouri where I studied psychology. After obtaining my Bachelor of Science in psychology, I pursued a certification to teach social studies at the secondary level as well as a master’s degree in education. I am a fan of the Royals and the Chiefs and a huge fan of football in general. I am also a lover of music and have played the guitar since I was 13. I currently live in downtown Kansas City.
After a year of student-teaching and two years of full-time teaching in my own classroom, I decided education was not for me, and opted to pursue a career in real-estate. Real-estate gives me the opportunity to work closely with people and help them realize certain goals without many of the bureaucratic headaches that came with public education. This freedom opens the door for more authenticity and more opportunities for me to be my best-self which is arguably the best contribution we can make to the world.
