Brenda Barrett (Spanish & Art Grades 5-8 and Language Arts Grade 5)

I teach 5th-8th grade Spanish and Art as well as 5th grade Language Arts.

I hold a B.A. in Theater with a Spanish and Linguistics emphasis from Macalester College, a Master’s in Education, a MN teaching license from St. Catherine University, and a certificate in teaching ESL from the University of St. Thomas.

In my spare time, I teach for the Minnesota Institute for Talented Youth (MITY). I enjoy spending time with my family and our dog,  cooking, and especially trying new restaurants and experiences.

I love getting to know the students as the unique individuals they are, laughing with them, and the thrill of the “ah-ha!” moment students have when they make new connections with their learning.
