In AWE and Inspired by Sarah Johnson
Sarah is a co-author of Balance Like a Pirate: Going Beyond Work-Life Balance to Ignite Passion and Thrive as an Educator and contributed to Peter DeWitt’s Collaborative Leadership: Six Influences that Matter Most and Adam Welcome’s Run Like a Pirate. She is a state and national conference speaker around topics of balance, resilience, faith.

Sarah left a position in a building to seek to teach masses in what she believes is a calling. Her passion for the message of balance and resiliency is the only thing that would have called her away from the daily work with students and staff, and she takes this message seriously. As an educational consultant, Sarah holds an unwavering belief in the importance of the message she shares with participants and readers of her leadership books about seeking balance, building resiliency and transforming within their own lives to be the best leaders they can be at home, work, and life.
