To all that come to this happy place, welcome!

Hello, 

 

My name is Mrs. Barry and this is my first year at Sage Creek High School and my 16th year in education. I started my journey in Phillipsburg, New Jersey where I taught high school journalism. I have always had a passion for writing. When I was a senior in high school, I worked at my local newspaper writing obituaries.

I relocated to California in 2006 where I taught English at Sanger High School and coached Speech and Debate. My passion for writing and speech and debate grew, and I took a position as the Speech and Debate Director at San Dieguito Academy. For the past six years, I was an English teacher, English Department Chair, ASB Director and Administrator at Guajome Park Academy. 

Both my children attend schools at Carlsbad Unified, and I knew one day I would work for Sage Creek High School. I am so excited to finally be a Bobcat! My goals for my students this year is to increase their love for reading and writing and help develop their voice. I am passionate about preparing students for the jobs that have not been created yet.

I love to travel. I have been all over the world and last year, I took students to China and Europe. In my free time, you can find me at the beach or at Disneyland. I am a HUGE Disney fan. My daughter and I love to attend Dapper Days and you can find us hanging out on main street.

Every Bobcat, Every Day!
