Ben and Courtney Justus are new teachers at Duncan Middle School

This semester, Duncan Middle School has received two new teachers. These two teachers just happen to be married.

Ben and Courtney Justus joined the DMS teaching team in January, following the Winter Break.

Ben Justus, also known as Coach Justus, teaches gym. He has been coaching for six years, and he is 25 years old.

“I became a coach because my dad was a coach, and I’ve always loved sports,” Ben Justus said.

He said his favorite thing about coaching is working with diverse students.

“If I could go back in time and talk to myself, I would tell myself to be myself,” he said.

Courtney Justus teaches eighth-grade science

“I became a teacher to better kids and show them that they can do things,” she said. “The staff is super friendly.”

She said if she could go back and talk to herself, she would tell herself to do her work and be polite.

Ben and Courtney Justus were previously at Ringling.
