Welcome to 4th Grade Language Arts. My name is Tammy Barber, and I will be teaching your children Reading and Writing this year.
Let me tell you a little bit about me. I was 9 years old when my family moved from Richmond, Virginia to New Braunfels in 1976. I have been a part of NBISD ever since. I went to Carl Schurz in the fourth and fifth grades, NB Middle School for sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, and NB High School for ninth-twelfth grades where I was a proud member of the Monocera Dance Team. I graduated and went on to attend Southwest Texas State University where I earned a degree in Elementary Education. My specialization and minor is in Mathematics, and I am certified to teach all academic subjects for grades 1 - 6 and Math for grades 1 - 8. I student taught at Memorial Primary (County Line Elementary) in a second grade classroom with Mrs. Jeanne Buck, and this is my twenty ninth year to teach here at Walnut Springs Elementary. While Math is my specialization and minor, reading and writing are my true loves! I look forward to sharing that love with my precious students.
I am married to Mark Barber, and we have a 25 year-old daughter, Caitlyn, and 20 year-old twin daughters, Maggie and Bailey. Caitlyn graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Hotel and Resort Management in 2013. She married an Air Force pilot in 2016, and we happily gained a son-in-law. Jared and Caitlyn are currently stationed in Germany. Maggie is attending ACC where she is working towards a Radiation Tech certification. Bailey is a student at Texas State University (formerly known as Southwest Texas State University--my alma mater), and she is working towards a teaching certificate in elementary education.
I am really excited about our upcoming year and look forward to working with you and your child.
