Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome Students and Families!
My name is Mr. Putman and I am an English Language Arts teacher here at Barnegat High School. Presently, I am teaching English I College Prep, English II College Prep, English II Honors and English Literacy Lab II. I hold a Bachelors Degree in English Literature from Rider University, a Masters Degree in Education, Instruction and Curriculum from Kean University and I have my standard state teaching certification in NJ. I changed careers from a mechanical construction project manager in New York City to pursue a career as a teacher and I am extremely pleased to be working in an extraordinary district such as Barnegat Township Schools. I am always available to aswsist my students and their families with any questions, comments or concerns they may have. I understand that this can be an overwhelmingly stressful time for all of us, but if we rely on each other for assistance, I am positive we will all be successful.
Please note that I am very fortunate to have my co-teacher, Mrs. Tedora, a veteran BHS teacher, who is also available to assist you should you need her help. We are here for you and strive for a successful year with all of our students!
If you are looking for notifications or specific information such as schedules, please refer to our Google Classroom, Syllabus or Barnegat High School home/district pages.
