I am Ms. Barker! I am so excited to be a part of your journey of learning and exploring as you move through middle school here at AMS Desert Sky. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Cell and Developmental Biology as well as a minor in Family and Human Development. After my first year of teaching last year, I decided to return to ASU to receive my Masters in Secondary Education, which I will begin this year. I am the mother of an adorable Cairn Terrier, Bear. I was born and raised in Monument, Colorado where many of my middle school teachers inspired me and helped me build the foundations for whom I wanted to be and what I wanted to do with my life. I look forward to working with each student at AMS to have a wonderful year full of learning and education!
