Mr. Eleson Tanton

Hello World,

My name is Eleson Tanton and I am very pleased to be the 8th grade Collabrative Education teacher for Smith Middle this year. I am a native of Dothan and got my undergraduate degree from Troy State University in 1999. My first year as a classroom teacher was later that year in Houston, TX where I spent almost 10 years serving students with the highest levels of need in one of the nations largest school districts. Since then I have taught Computer Science and BEST Robotics as well as working in private industry for several years as a technology consultant. 

I am a huge computer nerd and love working with technology in all its forms to help students succeed in their learning. My main desire this year is to support the learning of all students in the 8th grade.
