Physical Science
Team Barrett

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my teacher page. I am so excited to be back in the classroom after an excellent experience at RCPS+.  If you didn’t attend, you might consider it next summer...loads of projects and unstructured exploration in the Science classes! 

As we settle in to this school year, we will learn and practice routines, procedures,  and expectations, not only in the classrooms, but in the school as a whole. Be sure to be aware of new changes!

I am proud to say that I am part of a wonderful team of experienced Science teachers. However, the Team Barrett is incompletewithout  parents, as well as students. We must all work together towards a common goal, which is for students to continue becoming educated. We have to communicate and support each other. Many of you have heard me say, in the hallways, that I am here to help you through Science, not to prevent you from learning it.  Think about that. In essence, I am your Physical Science coach that will show you and guide you, you are the player that needs to practice the skills, and your parents are the audience that will support and encourage you.

On Team Barrett, you will be expected to

 1.Show up every day with the proper learning tools and materials.
2. Focus on the lesson and ask for clarification when needed.
3. Practice the assignment.
4. Be ready for the assessment.
