Faith Barrett – –Supplemental Services Instructor
I am a creative do-it-yourselfer who is falling more in love with Jesus every day as I learn more about his love for me. I married my high school sweetheart in the summer of 1994 and graduated with a Special Education degree from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN close to where Ben was stationed at Fort Campbell. We have four children. Kyrie is a freshman at Temple University studying Art Education, Davis and Katrina go to Elizabethtown High School, and Truett is in 6th grade at Bear Creek Intermediate in Etown.
I have a variety of teaching/school experiences that have really benefited me in my role as the Supplemental Services math teacher and 6th grade Social Studies teacher this year. I homeschooled my kids for 10 years and that is where I discovered my passion for history and also how to help each student in a small group setting who each have unique needs and are on different levels. Before having my kids I taught Life Skills to students with severe and profound disabilities at Kenwood High in Clarksville. I’ve also recently been a TSS at ELCO Intermediate and a full-time substitute teacher in the Etown and Manheim Central school districts.
My family and I worship at serve at LCBC Manheim. We have called LCBC home for 13 years. I have lead a small group of girls since they were in kindergarten (they are now in 9th grade). I love that group of girls like they are my own and look forward to spending time with them each week as well as when we get together outside of church. My kids all actively serve in various ministries at LCBC and they get mad if we can’t make it to church for some reason. (Even if it’s a fun reason like visiting their sister in Philly for the weekend!).
I’m thankful to be at NCCS this year and love learning alongside my students!
