I am currently pursuing my master's degree in Educational Leadership at the American College of Education, I received a Bachelor's Degree in English Language- Literacy from The University of the West Indies (First Class Honors) in 2012. I also hold an Associates Degree in English Language and Literature from The Mico University College in 2006. I have attended numerous educational workshops and conferences where I have received additional certificates.


This is my 14th academic year in the classroom. I have taught every grade level except 2nd, and 6th grade.


I have never wanted to do anything else but teach. Teaching is a rewarding experience and I enjoy giving my students vicarious experiences through Literature. I was born and raised on the island of Jamaica. My family and I moved to Phoenix four years ago.

I am a mother of two children and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 14 years. I am very active in my community as I am part of a vibrant church group and community based organization. I enjoy the performing arts which is my first love. I have written plays and staged full drama productions. I enjoy styling hair, applying make-up, and practicing anything related to beauty. An interesting fact about Mrs. Barrett is that I am a female barber as well. I look forward to a wonderful school year.
