Mr. James Johnson

Hello! This is my 5th year in the Religion department at St. Joes. I teach:

  • Religion 1 – Intro to Christianity
  • Religion 3 – Social Justice and Ethics
  • Elective – Film and Spirituality

In addition, I also moderate the Film Club, which all students are welcome to join!

Background Info: I’m originally from North Carolina and I studied Religion at Davidson College. After graduation, I spent three years living and working with homeless families as part of a Catholic Worker community in Minnesota. In 2014, my wife and I moved to the Chicago area to be closer to her family and pursue graduate studies in Theology at Loyola University.

Becoming a high-school Religion teacher has allowed me to integrate many of my greatest interests – social justice, community building, interfaith dialogue, and integral education. I love being a part of the St. Joes community, and enjoy collaborating with students, parents, and other teachers.
