My name is Mrs.Barrier and I am your child's 4th grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome into my classroom. This will be my twenty-sixth year teaching and my seventeenth year here at Gamewell Elementary. I am very excited about working with your child this school year!
I was born in Morganton, NC and earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Appalachian State University. I have taught 5th grade, 1st grade, 4th grade & I was a Literacy Specialist here at GES for 10 years. I love teaching, reading, and camping. I have a husband, an 9th grade son, two cats, two chickens and a dog. I enjoy going to the mountains and immensely dislike mayonnaise and scary movies. My favorite color is yellow, and my favorite flowers are daises. I look forward to a great school year!
