Welcome to Memorial 9th Grade Academy.  My name is John Barth and I am the department head for the Social Studies department.  This is my eighth year of teaching at the 9th grade center and ten years teaching overall.  I received my Bachelors of Applied Arts and Sciences degree from Lamar University, Beaumont, TX. I also have a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in Odessa, TX, and I am currently pursuing my doctorate in educational leadership from Liberty University. I also served in the Army during Desert Storm.  I am also a member of Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society and the Veteran of Foreign Wars.


I teach World Geography, the AVID Elective class and Advance Placement Human Geography.  I believe and expect high expectations from all of my students.  Every student has the ability to accomplish and attain his or her goals through hard work and study.
