Welcome to Ms. Barker's Teacher Page
Greetings friends! I have been teaching 20+ years. Most of which has been third grade. I have a dog and a cat. I dance, read, and hang out with my honey and the fur babies for fun.
I look forward to watching my students grow and learn. The shining eyes and glow like a light bulb when they get something that was tricky for them, inspires me every day.
I am a UC Santa Cruz graduate with an emphasis in child development. Go Banana slugs!!!! I received my teaching credentials from Chapman University.
District Tools I Use
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.
Sangha Interactive App:
I will be relying on the Sangha app to communicate with families in a protected, password-protected environment. Please download the app and log in using the parent-guardian email that was used for enrollment or data confirmation.
I am using Google Classroom to manage assignments if you would like daily or weekly digests of activities and missing assignments, I can invite you as a guardian. Please email me with your request and email address.
