Mrs. Barrett

I'd like to share a bit about myself and what brought me to Gainesville Junior High.

I spent most of my childhood between Glen Rose, Texas and St. Francisville, Louisiana. Both are small towns with lots of charm! I had the pleasure of learning under several phenomenal teachers who continuously went above and beyond to make a difference in their students' lives, which ultimately led me to devote my life to education as well. I completed my Bachelor's of Arts at the University of North Texas, where I studied history and education. I went on to become certified to teach both History and Language Arts (4th through 8th grades). My first teaching assignment was at McMath Middle School in Denton, where I taught sixth grade World Geography. I learned so much during my time there and I'm excited to bring those skills to Gainesville!

My biggest reason for wanting to become a teacher is that I want to leave an impact on this world and make a difference. I cannot tell you what a privilege it is to me to teach your children this year!

 Should you need to contact me, my office hours are 10:36 to 11:25 Monday through Friday. I can be reached at (940) 665-4062 extension 6018, or by email at rbarrett@gainesvilleisd.org.
