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.
