Hello! My name is Zach Johnson, the K-12 Physical Education teacher, 9th grade Health teacher, and Athletic Director here at Cascade Christian Academy. In the summer of 2019, I accepted my position and started teaching at CCA. I am blessed and excited to be a part of such a great school, with whom I share my love of Jesus Christ and education.
I was born and raised here in Wenatchee. I had a brief stint in Tampa, FL before moving back home and graduating from CCA in 2011. I graduated from Walla Walla University in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Health Science and received my certifications in personal training and exercise physiology from American College of Sports Medicine. I am currently in the process of obtaining my teaching certification in Secondary Education and endorsement in physical education through Rio Salado College. While I have already accomplished a lot, I plan to study even further to earn my Master’s Degree in Athletic Administration.
In July of 2019, Maddie and I were married! We are so excited to work together in an amazing school doing what we are passionate about. In my free time I enjoy backpacking, cycling, traveling, golfing, and making the best cup of coffee.
Through my coursework in physical education, I have discovered that teaching young minds and bodies is not always an easy task. Each day can be filled with many challenges and responsibilities, however, teaching physical education is full of excitement, joy, and smiles. I believe all students can learn, and as a teacher it is my job to motivate all learners and challenge them to reach their full potential. My hope is that my love and passion for leading a healthy lifestyle will leave a lasting impression on all of my students.
I believe in leading an environment where children will learn and grow academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. I see my role as an advocate for students and staff to support the demanding challenges of providing a high quality educational experience in a nurturing and safe school environment. Go Wolverines!
