Mr. Christopher Barton

Paraprofessional at Midway Hills Primary School

Nominated by Simone Brown, Coworker

Mr. Christoper Barton, also known as Coach Barton, is working in his first year as a paraprofessional with the Baldwin County School District. Prior to accepting the paraprofessional position, Mr. Barton was an intern with the School Nutrition Program for the district. Mr. Barton is a proud military veteran and has been a welcomed addition to the Midway Hills Primary School family. He was nominated by his coworker, Ms. Simone Brown. Ms. Brown had the following to say about Mr. Barton, “Coach Barton has been a great helper and motivator in my classroom. In the very short time that we have worked together, he has been a take charge kind of guy! I don’t have to tell him how he can help me. When he sees students who were struggling, he just jumps in and starts working with them. He even gives me suggestions that he thinks will be helpful. The relationship that he has built with my struggling students, especially the boys, has been great! I am so glad that they paired us together. It is for this reason that I feel that Coach Christopher Barton deserves the Pursuit of Excellence Award!” Mr. Barton, Thank you for modelling excellence!
