Tim Johnston

Tim JohnstonTim Johnston is a staff officer with the Alberta Teachersí Association in Edmonton. His responsibilities include supervising the Associationís international assistance programs, providing communications for collective bargaining, serving as editor of the ATA Magazine and directing the ATA Summer Conference. Mr. Johnston is a native of Lethbridge and received his education in Lethbridge Public Schools, NAIT and the University of Lethbridge. He was employed by The Lethbridge Herald as a staff photographer after leaving high school and later taught social studies at Wilson Junior High School and the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute.

Tim Johnstonís interest in history, and particularly the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), resulted from a visit as a teen to the abandoned Pearce Aerodrome when it still contained 20 Lancaster bombers. He is currently pursuing a private project on the history of the BCATP, which involves a review of all the daily diaries of the Planís schools. The fruits of Mr. Johnstonís research, which he generously provided to the Heritage Community Foundation, were invaluable to the completion of the Wings Over Alberta web project.

Mr. Johnston is married to Rebecca Robertson of Pacific Grove, California and together they have five children and make their home in St. Albert, Alberta.
