My name is Christy Tisdom and I am the assistant principal at Barrett Primary. I want to warmly welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. As the newly appointed assistant principal, it is my pleasure to be able to assist Karen Walthall in making this one of the best school years ever. I am looking forward to working with the dedicated staff of Barrett Primary, to provide the very best possible educational program for our students.
I graduated from Grambling State University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I also received a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Leadership from Concordia University, Chicago and the University of Houston-Clear Lake. I began my educational career 11 years ago as a Chicago Public School teacher. Prior to coming to Barrett Primary, I was a fourth grade teacher at Newport Elementary, in Crosby for 7 years.
Parents, teachers, the community and administration all have important roles to ensure our students become life-long learners. With the help of all stake holders, students will acquire the skills to become productive citizens in society. Please feel free to stop in and say hello, as my door is always open. I look forward to working collaboratively with you and your family to help maintain the high standard of student success here at Barrett Primary School.
