Ms. Beverly Barron Barnes
I have been teaching most of my life. When I was preschool, my Mother taught me how to sew on buttons and fry eggs . In those days you did not attend Kindergarten so I was taught basic survival skills in the home. I loved learning to read as a small child and later went into Elementary education with a specialization in Academic Language Therapy. (DYSLEXIA therapy). I also majored in Vocational Home Economics and minored in Business Administration.
When in High school my favorite subjects were Homemaking, Art and Drivers Ed, which all prepared me for being a mother.
I have 4 children and 4 grandchildren who are my world.
I work with Dyslexic students privately and teach a special needs class at my church on Sunday.
I have taught for 26 years and have had a great 7 years working with the wonderful Duncanville students.
