Greetings! I'm Mr. Justis, and this is my third year teaching 8th Grade Language and Literature at Century Middle School. Prior to Century, I taught for two years in High School Language Arts and Stage Technology in Longmont Colorado. I have a history of teaching abroad, and I enjoy traveling to different places and experiencing different cultures. I received my Bachelors in English Writing from C.U. Boulder in 2004 and my Masters in English and Rhetoric from C.U. Denver in 2012. I was born in Chicago but grew up in the Denver metro area. Aside from teaching, writing is my great passion, and I have published multiple texts. I also enjoy running, biking, hiking, skiiing, and just about any other outdoor, mountainous activity. Here at Century, I strongly believe in the power of reading for intellectual growth and enjoyment, so I am the sponsor of the school's book club.
