Welcome to 3B!

Welcome to 3rd grade!
My name is Miss Barrett, and I am so excited to journey through 3rd grade with you. I am looking forward to a year of success and growth with your student. My goal is to create a safe classroom environment, as well as an opportunity for students to excel in their academic endeavors.
About Me:
I graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in in English. I grew up in California, but moved to Illinois when I attended Wheaton College. As much as I miss the warm sunny winters of SoCal, I love all of the amazing people I have met here and love teaching at Jefferson! I am passionate about teaching and love to teach through music and song!
Keeping up with our class:
Keep up with our class on the Class Dojo app or through Seesaw! I use these programs to post about homework, provide learning updates and pictures from the fun things we do in class, and showcase student work! Always feel free to email me at
Additionally we use Seesaw, a place for students to publish their work so their families can see it online. If you want to keep up with your child on Seesaw follow these instructions:

Dear Families,

This year we are using Seesaw to share and communicate with families! Your child will post to Seesaw to share their learning. I'll also use Seesaw to send you messages and reminders. Seesaw is private; you'll only see posts created by your child.
