Hello! My name is Josie Johnston and I am the AP Human Geography and World History teacher as well as the Speech & Debate coach here at CSMB. I earned a Bachelor's in 5-12 grade Social Studies, 5-12 English Language Arts, and a Master's in Teaching English as a Second Language at Webster University. I have taught social studies for 9 years and ELA for 2 years. I have coached policy debate for 5 years.
I grew up just south of Kansas City, Mo (Go Chiefs!) on our family farm and moved to St. Louis 14 years ago. I love teaching at CSMB and look forward to serving the students here for many years to come.
