Greetings! I'm Mr. Justis, and I've been teaching 8th Grade Language and Literature at Century since 2014. 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 several pieces of literature. I also enjoy running, biking, hiking, skiiing, and just about any other outdoor, mountainous activity. Recently I started learning to play the guitar. Here at Century, I strongly believe in the power of writing for expression, growth, and enjoyment; therefore, I am proud to sponsor the school's Creative Writing Club.
