Hi my name is Justin Johnston. This is my 12th year teaching in Belle Plaine and I will be teaching 10th grade American History and 12th grade Senior Social. 

I am originally from Hamiltion, ND, which is 15 miles from Minnesota and 15 miles from Manitoba. I am a 1993 graduate Cavalier High School. I attended the Univeristy of North Dakota in Grand Forks for my undergraduate in Geography, I then went to Mayville State University in Mayville, ND for a 1 1/2 years and received my Social Studies Education degree. I also have a Master's of Education degree from St. Mary's University - Winona and a Ed. Specialist Degree (K-12 Principal) from Minnesota State -Mankato. This is going to be my 16th year teaching, teaching previously in Winona school districts, at Winona Senior High.  

I have been the head Football coach in Belle Plaine the last 12 years as well as an assistant Baseball coach. I enjoy spending time with my family, I have been married for 9 years to my wife Amy, I have a step daughter Mariena, daughter Alaina, and son Aaron. We try to travel in the summer but most of our vacations revolve around visiting family. I play on the Belle Plaine Grey Tigers over 35 baseball team and enjoy most things sports related.
