Mr. Derrick Shron Baston Sr. » Bio


Hello everyone, my name is Mr. Baston aka Mr. B and I am the 'In School Suspension Teacher' at Martin City. Don't let the title frighten you because I am way more than just a disciplinary figure in the building. I also lead an organization called 'Men of The Future' which spends part of the year mentoring young men and giving them purpose for their own future.
My main objective in our building is helping young ones who are having a hard time with school to find meaning in their lives which in turn will create happiness for them. Sometimes all a child need is to be heard and understood, to feel loved and accepted from an adult. I truly believe these kind gestures towards our young ones will creates very productive young men and women in our building.
If you need to reach me you can call me at 816-316-5777 or email me at
