Hi everyone! I am Arley Barton, and I am excited to be starting my second year at Hartman. 
I have 2 awesome kids.  Cameron has headed off to Arkansas to play baseball at Arkansas Baptist College.  Alysa will be a junior at Wylie High and is a Varsity cheerleader. We have two dogs, an Olde English Bulldogge named Brooklyn and an Australian Shepard named Peanut.
I grew up in Garland and graduated from Naaman Forest High School.  I attended University of North Texas and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.  Later, I went back to Texas A&M Commerce and earned my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction along with my principal certificate. I recently earned my Superintendent certification.
I believe all students possess great potential and we, as educators, have a responsibility to help them identify and work towards their goals.  It takes a village to build up all students and I am excited to be a part of the Hartman Village.
