Probably my third favorite teacher among the IB ones, Had him 2003-04 for HL history. Nice guy, but you better make sure to do your reading and studying.

Burton really is everything you could ask for in an IB History teacher. I had him for one year, and then he took another job. But his tests were easily the most perplexing in all of high school. He's like a grandfather figure and if you approach him he'd love to talk about anything from fishing to politics to basketball. Very strict but understanding at the same time. Definitely prepares you well for college. Bottom line if you can get an A in Burton's class you can get an IB 7. F you Carrolwood

I learned a huge amount in Mr. Burton's class during my two years with him, he is truly an outstanding teacher and person, and I can not imagine having had a better history class. His biggest flaw is

Mr. Burton is an awe-inspiring educator. He trains his students to view the world through the keen eye of a historian, and to derive unbiased, objective truth from subjective, documented reality.

I had Mr. Burton years ago, but he was hands down the best teacher I ever had and even though I went into a completely different field, the things I learned in his classes laid the foundation for so m

If you pay attention in class and do your assigned readings, you'll be fine. He's far and away the best teacher I've ever had (and it was great being his TA, too!).

One of the best teachers I have ever had, if not THE best. He really prepares you for the IB exam and your History IA. He grades for IB, so he knows what they are looking for (he's actually one step above the primary graders, meaning he actually makes sure they are grading correctly). Far from an easy class. You have to really work and study hard, but no one I have spoken to has had any regrets taking his class. Awesome and funny teacher. Fun. Sociable. Organized. Very little could make him any better.

I have only had this teacher for coaching but he oozes integrity and respect. In coaching he is extremely helpful and supportive; I'd love to have him as a teacher!

There are no words to describe Mr. Burton's talent as an educator. He mandates a quality of respect and care from students that very few teachers care to concern themselves with.

Mr. Burton was wonderful when he was my teacher and academic advisor at SPHS (1985-1989). He's a very caring man.

Even though he's a tough teacher, I really feel like I learned something in that class, and he's so funny, especially when M.O.B is around.
