I will never forget Steves rabble rousing speeches every year at the parent Info night. He made you excited about progressive education and the importance of valuing all types of learners. So important for shaping my child, and my parenting! Leading all school songs with his guitar, reading loving tributes to students for all kinds of achievements that inspire on Lake Day, and not the least for galvanizing us parents a few years back, to help save Barton School from the district/neighborhood proposal that threatened the loss of our wonderful school building on Colfax. I am so glad I got to know Steve and have him in our family’s life for 8 years! I miss him, the Barton teachers and Barton’s philosophy as we move onward into the high school years...! Thanks for the memories, Steve. Terrell Daniels, mom of Ming Montgomery
