Mrs. Lori Barker - 7th Grade PAP Math and 8th Grade PAP Algebra



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Lori Barker - 7th Grade PAP Math and 8th Grade PAP Algebra

I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. After teaching 7th grade math for one year in Cleveland, I taught grade 7 math through AP Calculus for 9 additional years in Bartlett.  I left the classroom in May of 2002 to stay home with my son although I did stay in education by writing for Teacher Created Materials.

This year marks my sixth year at Benold and I could not be more excited.  I am ready to challenge each and every one of my students to learn not only the specific material expected but to develop the curiosity and thinking skills necessary of mathematicians.

I am here because each student is worth the time and effort it takes to help that person reach his or her dreams - not just in math but in all that is ahead.  Mathematics is amazing in itself but the doors it can open are endless.  Each person deserves to have the opportunities to explore all that mathematics can offer.
