Teacherease Apply Now

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 & 8th Grade Teacher
School Technology Director

Justin Wintrone begins his fifth year teaching at St. John in the 2023-2024 school year. He is a graduate of Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, with majors in elementary education and secondary social studies education. 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 school technology director.

Justin lives in Mundelein with his wife, Monica, and daughter, Eliza. 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."
