• ¡Bienvenidos!

    Welcome to World Language! My name is Señora Barton-Thrift. I have been teaching in the Jackson School District since the 2000-2001 school year. That's 18 years of teaching Spanish! Before that I taught kindergarten, first, and second grade after teaching a year of Spanish in grades 3-5 in North Carolina. I look forward to meeting my students and beginning a new adventure together as we explore the language and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Banderas de Países Hispanohablantes
