Miss Mary Kate Barrett

Hello! My name is Miss Mary Kate Barrett and I am a first-year teacher. I am so excited to join the Arcadia Kindergarten team. I graduated from Ball State University with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I grew up in Oak Lawn, Illinois, and attended Mother McAuley High School. Some of my hobbies include finding a new book to read and spending time outside.
I believe that with differentiated and tailored instruction to meet students' needs, every student can grow academically, emotionally, and socially. My goal as an educator is to create a welcoming and accepting classroom, where each student feels seen and heard. I look forward to a great school year!
