Mr. David Johnston

Hello Wolfpack! This is my second year at Plano West, my second year in Honors Physics, and my first year teaching Earth and Space Science. My wife and I live in Plano with our son, where she is a teacher in Richardson. We both came from other states to UT Dallas as part of their National Merit Scholars program, and decided we never wanted to leave Texas.
I started in the Mechanical Engineering program, before switching to Interdisciplinary in an effort to add more biology. After graduation, I spent a couple years working in the aquarium industry as an animal care specialist, before certifying in composite science high school education. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year in teaching, and I look forward to many more!
