Welcome to Belle Plaine




Mr. Josh Godwin

Josh Godwin grew up in Belle Plaine and was a 1991 graduate. He received his teaching degree at Wichita State University and his Master’s at Baker University. While attending WSU he found a job coaching football for Belle Plaine High School. He was hooked and found that his passion was in leading young men. He continued his coaching and teaching career in the Haysville School district. He spent 11 years as a coach and teacher at both middle schools, then 2 years as the Transportation Director and finally as the Campus High School Athletic Director and Assistant Principal.


Any success Josh has had he attributes to growing up in a small town. In Belle Plaine he learned the importance of Family, Integrity, Work Ethic, and Community Pride. Josh is married to his high school sweetheart Heather Cornelson Godwin. They have 3 children, Tyler 22, Madi 18, and Brogan 15. Josh believes that every kid can be successful. We as educators must find their spark, their passion, and then help them grow.

Josh is a quote guy and his favorite is, “The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.” –  Vince Lombardi
