Dimitri Barton ’08

Quite a bit has changed around here since I graduated in ’08, but at its core, SFS is still the same.

Shortly after graduating from middle school I began coaching youth soccer, where I discovered my passion for teaching. By the time I enrolled at Skidmore College, I already knew that I wanted to become a professional educator; the only question was: what subject?

After graduating in 2016 with a BS in Education Studies, I took advantage of my bilingual upbringing and spent 10 months in Chuburna Puerto, Mexico coaching, tutoring, and teaching children in both English and Spanish. In 2017-18, I joined the Spanish team at SFS. It is an honor to teach alongside many of the people that guided my path towards education.
