P.I.E.S. Awards February 2024 Brett Barton 4th Grade Teacher Wilcox Elementary School

The Pocatello/Chubbuck School District 25’s Employee-of-the-Month P.I.E.S. award recognizes employees who Positively Influence Educational Success. The award is for employees who go above and beyond in that effort. 

This month we recognized Mr. Brett Barton as February’s PIES Award recipient. Mr. Barton teaches 4th grade at Wilcox Elementary School.  

Mr. Barton was nominated for the PIES Employee of the Month award by Wilcox Principal Mrs. Campos. 
n her nomination, Mrs. Campos wrote, “Brett Barton is a quiet, compassionate educator. He has been a part of our school district for over 20 years and in that time has experienced many changes in technology, curriculum, programs, innovations, and policies. Through all of that, I have never heard him speak an unkind word or share a negative thought about anyone or anything. Brett is usually the 1st or 2nd person in the building each morning. His classroom is organized and welcoming to all learners and staff. You will always hear soft background music playing throughout the day and the classroom atmosphere is calm and inviting. Learners know they are cared for in his classroom. He willingly collaborates with his colleagues and shares ideas and suggestions in a positive forward forward-thinking way. Mr. Barton has a fabulous sense of humor and engages students in learning through funny voices, animated stories, and focused and targeted instruction. Mr. Barton is well-loved by our entire Wilcox community!”

Mr. Barton was recognized at the Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, and received a $50 gift card from the educational partner for this award, Lookout Credit Union.
