PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND: My name is Sandy Barrett. I am the elementary math coach for the Cossatot River School District. I have been teaching for the Van-Cove/Cossatot River School District for 32 years. During this teaching career I have taught reading interventions and Migrant education (3 years), 1st grade (11 years), 4th grade (8 years), 5th and 6th grade math (9 years), and have been math coach for 1 year. I travel between the three elementary campuses to work with classroom teachers and students. My duties include teaching lessons in the classrooms, working with small groups on math skills, assessing students, and researching and sharing math lessons with teachers. I LOVE my new job as math coach because I get to see all grade levels and observe how students think about math.
PERSONAL BACKGROUND: I grew up in Zafra, Oklahoma and graduated high school from Smithville, Oklahoma, and college from Southeastern Oklahoma State University (Bachelor's degree) and Henderson University (Master's degree). I am National Board certified in Math for the Middle Child. I have been married to Bill Barrett for 34 years and have lived in Vandervoort all those years. We have 3 sons and 1 grandson. I attend Vandervoort First Baptist Church where I teach a ladies' Sunday School class and play the piano. God has truly blessed me with a wonderful family as well as great staff and students with which to work.
