Mrs. Casey Barrett
Hello! Welcome to 6th Grade English with Mrs. Barrett and Mrs. Garay. I am so happy you're here and I can't wait to get to meet you all. Here are some things to help you get to know me better:
This will be my 2nd year at FCMS. I have only lived in Henry County for about 5 years. Prior to moving here, I was a student at Longwood University. Before college, I grew up in the Hamptons Roads region of Virginia. Many people wonder how I ended up in SWVA after growing up on the coast... the short answer is that my husband lives here! My husband is an MVHS graduate so when I finished college, it made the most sense for me to move here. We live in Collinsville with the BEST beagle mixes ever - Hank and Maggie! I absolutely love Henry County and don't plan on moving any time soon.
In addition to teaching, I am also a swim coach. I was a competitive swimmer from ages 4 - 18 and I am entering my 5th year of coaching. There are many parallels between teaching and coaching which is probably why I enjoy both so much! :) In my spare time, I enjoy being outside. I've actually had prior students see me walking my dogs in my neighborhood! I also like running, kayaking, hiking, reading, going to the pool/beach/lake, taking classes at Orangetheory Fitness, and playing Animal Crossing. :)
I am ecstatic to tackle English 6 with my co-teacher, Mrs. Garay. We are looking forward to an incredible year!!!
