Mr. Justin Linthicum

Justin Linthicum brings a wealth of experience and a deep-rooted commitment to excellence as the Principal at Byron P. Steele High School. With a career spanning from the classroom to leadership roles, Linthicum embodies the spirit of dedication and service to education.

"I am humbled and excited to have the opportunity," says Mr. Linthicum, who spent six years at Steele HS as an English teacher and head soccer coach prior to serving in a similar capacity at Marion ISD. “My fondest memories as a teacher and coach took place at Steele High School. I am eager to help sustain and grow the legacy of excellence that was established in August of 2005, when the doors to the school first opened.”

Justin's ties to SCUC (Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District) run deep, extending to his family. His wife, Molly, is a PE teacher at Wiederstein Elementary School, while their two sons, Jace and Jonah, proudly attend school there, poised to become future Knights.

He continued his academic journey with a Master's in Education Leadership from West Texas A&M in 2017, equipping himself with the knowledge and skills necessary to drive positive change in educational settings.

"My passion is championing and advocating for ALL students, staff and public education," Linthicum said. “I have an unwavering belief that, as educators, we have the opportunity to positively impact the trajectory of students’ lives every single day.”
