Welcome to Ms. Barker's 2nd Grade Class!
Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies
I have lived in the Gainesville area my whole life. I knew I wanted to be a teacher and work with kids from a young age. I am currently going into my first year of teaching, but I love what I do and look forward to finishing the year off with such a great group of kids. When I’m not teaching, you can find me spending time with family and friends, spoiling my dogs, working out, or reading.
I graduated from Midwestern State University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. Despite being a first year teacher, I am passionate and determined to create a welcoming and comforting learning environment for all students. My goal is to help students build a love for learning and to become lifelong readers and exceptional problem solvers while still bringing fun into the classroom. I look forward to getting to know you and your child. I know we will have a great year!
I welcome and value parent communication. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have.
Let's make it a great year Chalmers Leopards!
