Mrs. Erin Barker

          Welcome Families!  It is an absolute honor to be joining Kate Waller Barrett Elementary as Assistant Principal.  KWBES is certainly a special place to be.  I am originally from a town just north of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and am an avid Philly sports fan.  After moving to Virginia after college in 2008, I began my teaching career in Stafford County, serving at Winding Creek Elementary for 6 years as both a 5th Grade Teacher and Special Education Teacher.  After that, I moved to Culpeper County, where I served at Pearl Sample Elementary for 5 years as a Special Education Teacher and Designee.  Then, I transitioned into the role of Assistant Principal of Hampton Oaks Elementary beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.  My husband, John, and I reside in Stafford. In my spare time, I enjoy running, crafting, and cooking.

           It is my commitment to foster a learning environment in which our scholars are able to develop academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally.  I am a strong believer in the importance of teamwork.  When we come together as a team, we are able to work together to ensure that our scholars have the support that they need to be successful and reach their goals.  Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the year.  I look forward to a productive and fulfilling 2022-2023 school year.
