Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Mitton


I am originally from Pocatello, Idaho, where I have lived for almost my entire life. It was there that I received a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education, English & History from Idaho State University. During my time at Idaho State University, I met and married my wife, who is also a teacher. Together we have two cats. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, watching films, reading, camping, and hiking. Because of my love for the outdoors, I enjoy the rugged scenery of West Wendover.  

I joined the West Wendover Middle School Wolves in 2019, and enjoy teaching English to both 7th and 8th grade. My favorite thing about teaching English is teaching students how to think critically and express their ideas. Besides teaching English, some of my passions include history, geography, environmental issues, and social justice. I am happy to be a part of such an excellent school full of supportive staff and eager students.
