Grades 7 and 8


Seventh and eighth graders bring lots of previous knowledge to the classroom, as well as a desire to learn more and make deeper connections that apply to real life. In our classroom, we have the ability to work both as a group and individually to help the students learn and grow. We also use methods and strategies that will help prepare the students for high school and beyond. Let's talk about how we can partner in the education of your child.

7th and 8th Grade Teacher

Justin Wintrone spent the first year of his teaching ministry here at St. John as the 7th-8th grade teacher. He then returned to Martin Luther College to finish his education and graduated in 2020 with majors in elementary education and secondary social studies education. He was then called to return to St. John to continue his ministry. He enjoys preparing his students for the high school level using different teaching strategies and resources, as well as sharing God's Word with them every day. He serves St. John also as the church Youth Group leader.

Justin and his wife, Monica, live in Gurnee. In his free time, he enjoys watching sports, exercising, and reading (especially about history).

I find great joy in sharing God's Word with the students here on a daily basis, as well as watching them grow in their academic skills. The family atmosphere at St. John Lutheran Church and School makes it a joy for me to serve here.
