02/21/14 - Ok first of I have the assumption that this website is just used to let students know if they can go to class or not with the optional "attendance" section and "Cool" option, which isn't the point of school. But anyway, I was in her lit class and she was such a caring and kind individual. She took your interests and made them her own. I'll never have another teacher like her. By being in her class, I became my own independent person. My memories of lit class will always stay thanks to her. :) Show More Show Less

06/22/12 - Mrs. Barkley was an amazing teacher. After being in a class with her you learn to be an open minded individual. Don't argue with her in class because you'll lose almost every time. She is honestly one of the very few teachers who actually cares about her students. Show More Show Less
