Mr. James Norris, MBA

Hello Trojans,

I am James Norris, Dean of Students. I am honored to be a part of the Trojan family and look forward to working with all of you this school year.

A little about me:

This is my 5th year teaching. Before coming to South Johnston, I was a Business Teacher at West Johnston and at Mcgess Middle School. While at West Johnston, I was the head JV Football Coach and also wide receivers coach for varsity and JV. Before I started teaching, I proudly served this country in the U.S. Army and was medically retired as a Sergeant First Class (SFC) after 18 years. I served in various leadership roles and in different specialties. For about the last 10 years of my military career, I served in the Information Technology (IT) field.

I currently live in Benson with my 2 kids, Kaylee and JT, and my lab Marshall.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me anytime by calling the school or emailing me at


As we are adjusting to the changes implemented by our school closure while dealing with the COVID-19 virus, I will be working remotely from home. I am available anytime throughout the day for 8:00am - 4:00pm Monday through Friday. I check my emails reguarly and will do my best to respond to any questions as quickly as I can. Thank you for your understanding and paitence as we navigate through this diffcult time.
