Mr. John Thornton

My name is John Thornton and I am a 5th grade teacher at Challenger Elementary. I have been teaching for 6 years, 5 years here at Challenger and 1 year at Dannelly Elementary in Montgomery, Alabama as a 4th grade teacher. Some of my hobbies include; solving difficult problems, painting, singing, and volunteering with my church family. Unfortunately, I do not have a family of my own, but I do have a girlfriend that I love very much. This year, I plan to add your child to my family! I am very excited for the upcoming school year and can’t wait to create new and everlasting memories!
