Mrs. Lori Barker - 8th Grade Mathematics and Advanced Geometry

I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. After teaching 7th grade math for one year in Cleveland, I taught grade 7 math through AP Calculus for 9 additional years in Bartlett.  I left the classroom in May of 2002 to stay home with my son, although I did stay in education by writing for Teacher Created Materials.

This year marks my eleventh year at Benold and I could not be more excited.  I am ready to challenge each and every one of my students to learn not only the specific material expected but to develop the curiosity and thinking skills necessary of mathematicians.

I am here because each student is worth the time and effort it takes to help that person reach his or her dreams - not just in math but in all that is ahead.  Mathematics is amazing, and the doors it can open are endless.  Each person deserves to have the opportunity to explore all that mathematics can offer.
