Meet Rob Kodama

I'm Rob Kodama. I'm the Director of Admissions in Marketing and Public Relations at Crest B. Carlmont High School. I'm a Gurian trainer for the Gurian Institute. I'm also the head soccer coach at our school. I coach club soccer. I run K sports soccer camps. And I have two children. I have a son and a daughter. So I've been fortunate enough to have the best of both worlds. Married. And in my spare time I like coaching. I love working with kids. It's what I love to do. When my wife and I have conversations about why I continue to do it. Why I continue to coach. My hope and my goal and my dream is really to be able to provide something for others that I hope someone will do for my own. I know that for my son, Ethan and daughter, Mia that there are going to be coaches that are going to make a difference in their lives. And if I am able to do that, continue to do that for others, I'm hoping that someday someone will do that for my own.
