About Mr. Barton
Who am I?
My name is Morrice Barton and I am a 5th Grade teacher at Barkhamsted Elementary. I graduated with a BS in Human Services, from Springfield College, then went on to complete graduate teacher training at University of Bridgeport.
Originally from Australia (can you say G’Day), I have worked in banking, tourism and taught English in Japan, before I moved to America. I worked for 15 years at YMCA camps, running summer and outdoor education programs. I live locally with my wife and sons.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, being at the beach, am a keen hiker, an avid reader of Stephen King books, and a creaky but sneaky basketball player. I also love finding great vocabulary words in books I read!
