Hello My Name Is...

Barker

I have been teaching since 1975.  I graduated from Mars Hill University with a BA degree and also from Winthrop University with a M.Ed degree.  I have taught elementary grades in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.  In 1993, I began teaching first graders when our school was Hilton Head Primary.  I have been with the IB program since 2004.    Teaching has always been my passion.  I believe in each of my students as learners and responsible students.  The IB attributes and attitudes help us build character and respect for each other as we work and play together.  I rejoice in my students' accomplishments and in their passions for life.
