Welcome to Second Grade in Barton's Bay! My name is Mrs. Barton. In addition to being an elementary teacher, I am also a certified reading specialist. West Chester University is where I earned my bachelor's degree and my master's degree is from Villanova University. Go Wildcats! I have been a teacher for a long time, but each year is fresh and exciting to me. Creating relationships with my students and their families is of upmost importance to me. Indian Lane is my second home, but I do have a first one, too. I have a husband and two children. They know that teaching is one of my loves and are very supportive, even when it takes my nights and weekends. Ryan is in college for computer engineering and Kelsey is all about sports in high school. We also have two adorable, but super spoiled chihuahuas. I love teaching, reading and spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy volunteering. For the past few years, I have been honored to get to work with the Special Olympic organization right here at Indian Lane!
