  • johnstone About MeI'm beginning my twelfth year of teaching. I started at FHS, spent five years teachng at FMS and then the last six at FHS. The return to high school was an exciting change and the energy and passion of the students last year, ensured me I was in the right place.
     
    I've taught a number of courses over the last decade including Government, Personal Business Financeh, Economics, Geometry, Algebra, multiple middle school math classes, Project Lead the Way (Engineering), Introduction to Engineering, World Cultures, and Civil Engineering and Architecture. I'm excited about continuing with our new advanced drafting and architecture course that qualifies for visual art credit with CSU/UC that was entirely student driven. Students wanted a pathway to continue studying architecture and design and I'm proud that we were able to create this course to answer that student demand. 
     
    I've also done work with graphic design and technology outside of school. For fun, I enjoying boating on Folsom Lake, skiing in Tahoe, backpacking, and running. This past summer my wife and I backpacked in Canada and did a traithlon. I've run 11 marathons, lots of triathlons and completed my first Half Ironman (70.3 miles) almost an hour ahead of my goal. I have my sailing, boating, SCUBA, and private pilot's licenses.
