About Mrs. Barnett
I earned a BS in Mathematics from the University of Oklahoma, taught in Texas public schools for 7 years, and then started a new career as a stayathome mom. As our family grew, we considered homeschooling and decided it would be an excellent fit.
Our family's homeschool journey began in 2001. We didn't start out with a plan to homeschool through high school graduation, but we grew to love the lifestyle and value the educational opportunities...so here we are! All four of our children have now graduated as home educated students, two are college graduates and two are in college currently. Brent and I are grateful that homeschooling our children has provided them with the opportunity to excel academically, socially, and in the areas of their individual interests. Two of our children have achieved recognition as National Merit Scholars and one is a Fulbright Scholar semifinalist.
I consider myself very blessed to be able to work with other families  sharing my joy and passion for math with the students, encouraging them towards excellence, and taking some of the burden from the parents. I love challenging students to become "Wise, Honest, Responsible, Intelligent, and Mature Students," (WHIRMS for short.) These attributes contribute to success in academics and in th rest of life too! I consider classtime to be an opportunity to encourage students to develop their thinking skills as well as their understanding of mathematical concepts.
Although most people will never solve a complicated equation in the "real world," everyone benefits from the ability to think abstractly and to apply previous learning to new situations. Math is logical, predictable, and beautiful in its design and it would be an honor to share my love of math with your student this school year!
