My Education & Teaching Background
My name is Rebecca Barnes and I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my 20th year here at Carver Elementary. Six of those years was as a Carver parent where I served on the PTA Board and as PTA President. During that time, I taught Pre-K at the Learning Tree for 4 years, a Pre-K Paraprofessional here at Carver for 4 years, 8 years in second grade, and then as a fourth grade math & science teacher. I graduated from Boston University with a B.S. in Broadcasting and Film and have worked on several productions that won Emmys and even an Academy Award. I have certifications in Elementary Education, English as a Second Language and Gifted and Talented. I have been married to my wonderful husband Dana for 29 years. We have two daughters, Raleigh and Brenna who are also former Carver kids. Raleigh went on to graduate from Georgetown High School and Brenna graduated from East View High School. Both are graduates of Texas State University, go Bobcats!
I am so excited about this school year and hope you are too. Fouth grade is an exciting and fun year! My goals are to create a community of learners, who feel confident in taking risks during their learning process, and to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child's life.
