    Welcome to History! My name is Jon Barnhart and I am teaching History for grades 7 through 12  here at Richey Schools.  I look forward to another great year with all of you and hope that this year will be full of learning.
     
    About Me:  I was raised in a small agricultural town in the Shields Valley which is between Livingston and White Sulphur Springs.  I spent my high school and college years in Bozeman where I graduated from Montana State University.  I majored in history education and also received a degree in coaching, I also have a k-12 P.E. endorsement. I am a certified personal trainer through the International Sports Science Association certified to teach kick boxing fitness through Human Kinetics and a Certified Olympic Lifts Weight Coach through Athletes Acceleration. I am married with a daughter that is turning 9 this October.  In my spare time I like to hunt, fish, camp, play basketball and baseball and spend time with my family.
     
    About Class: I am looking forward to working with all of the students in each class.  I feel that it is important that each student have strong reading, writing, and speaking skills.  Each class will have assignments that help teach students these skills. I am committed to helping every student succeed. However, I will not lower the bar to make students feel better.  I expect every student to be prompt, respectful,and to work to the best of their ability.  If you have questions please feel free to contact me, I do have a home phone but the best way to reach me is by email or calling the school during school hours my extension is 227.
