Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Barr

Ms. Barr, 4th grade

   I am excited to be in my tenth year teaching for the Beaufort County School District and ninth at Red Cedar. I teach 4th grade this year with a new group of students and love looping to 5th grade with them.

   I have pursued teaching since I was in Elementary school.  I come from a family of teachers.  My mom taught preschool and my aunt is a professor of education at a college in my hometown.  I earned an undergrad degree in Middle Grades Education (4-8) with a concentration in Language Arts and Social Studies.  I have also completed an endorsement to teach Gifted and Talented students and an Elementary Add-on to teach Elementary School in South Carolina.

      My husband  and I l moved to Beaufort in 2008.  Since then, we’ve adopted three children all of which are teenagers.  Our two youngest will be in High School this year.  We also have 2 dogs, Champ and Polly.

Before moving to South Carolina, we lived in Texas and North Carolina.  My first teaching job was outside of Charlotte, NC, where I taught  Middle School Language Arts and Social Studies.  We then moved to Texas where I taught 4th grade for four years.  I am originally from Georgia, where my family still lives.
