In this conversation:
Have you called your mother yet?
Yes, I JUST CALLED her.
(American Headway - 1B , page 105 - Liz and John Soars - OXFORD)
Is the word JUST used properly with the simple past?
BTW, I'm a teacher in Brazil.

It's fine- the present perfect in this sense is more common in British English than American, but even in British English, the past is regularly used with 'just'.
