Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I'm Mrs. Barkley and this is my fifth year teaching here at Fort King Middle School. I was previously a para-professional in Marion County for four years until I decided to return to college to become a educator. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Middle Grades Education from Saint Leo University, and I am currently a mentor and trainer for new teachers in Marion County. Teaching is my passion, specifically when it comes to English. I love working with kids and helping them to learn and expand their knowledge. I am also a mother, with three kids of my own, so I promise to treat and teach your student as if they were my own. I look forward to working with your children this year to help them achieve their goals and work towards a successful future in high school.
