Hello! Many of you already know who I am, but for those that don’t, my name is J.D. Johnson. I graduated from Mission Valley and from there I went to Dodge City Community College. I received my Bachelor Degree from Newman University and my Master’s Degree from Fort Hays State University. I have been in education for 19 years and during that time I taught High School Social Studies, Driver Education, and coached just about every sport! The last four years I have been a Principal/AD in a small community in Southwest Kansas. 

My wife of 20 years Rachel will be working in Alma. My oldest daughter Madelaine just graduated and will be attending Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. Gabrielle will be a freshman, and my son Brody will be a 4th grader. We are all very excited about being part of Mission Valley and getting to know you. 

Please introduce yourselves and don’t hesitate in asking for any assistance. As principal at Mission Valley High School, I hope to motivate, inspire and challenge our students to become leaders of our school and community. My goal for myself and our staff is to provide a safe and caring environment where all students can learn and succeed. It is important to me that all students who attend Mission Valley schools will continue to model and demonstrate life long learning skills. Thank you all for your welcome (back) to Mission Valley! J.D. Johnson, 7-12 Principal
