Tanya Barton

The one thing I’ve done that I am most proud of to help children succeed at MHS is: Create a positive environment in which children want to come to school every day. I want them to be happy, feel safe, and be challenged academically on a daily basis. I’d like to think we help the students become caring and concerned critical thinkers who will one day make a difference in the lives of many. At the end of the day, I always ask myself if this is a school I would want my own two children to attend. As I walk around and see our teachers in action, I can honestly say that I would.
