Welcome to Barksdale! This is my 20th year of teaching Kindergarten. I attended Denison University where I received a BS in Psychology and Ohio State University where I received a Masters in Education. My goal for your child is to become a confident learner and to feel like a special part of the Barksdale family. My husband and I have 2 daughters and both attended Barksdale! I love Kindergarten because each day is so much fun. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Let's have a great year!

Welcome to Barksdale!

I am so excited to start a new year in Kindergarten! I hope to see all my new Bengals at Back to School Night: Tuesday, Aug. 6, from 5 to 7pm.

Some important Back to School Information for kindergarten students:

  1. Wednesday Aug. 7 - Kindergarten students report to school at 9am WITH their parents. There will be a short informational meeting to go over school and class information with parents. Students will leave with parents after meetings conclude.
  2. Aug 8th - No School for students.
  3. Aug 9th - Aug 15th - Kindergarten students will ONLY report to school on their assigned testing day. This will allow students and teacher the time to get to know one another in small groups and become acquainted with school rules, routines, and procedures.
  4. Aug 16th - All kindergarten students report to school full time as a complete class.

School Supplies:

*Students may bring in their school supplies on the first day of school or on their first assigned testing day.
