Mrs. Erin Barker
Welcome to Hampton Oaks Elementary School! I am honored to be joining the Hampton Oaks family as your new Assistant Principal. I am originally from a town just north of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and am an avid Philly sports fan. After earning my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Duquesne University, I began my teaching career in Stafford County. I taught at Winding Creek Elementary for 6 years as a 5th Grade Teacher and a Special Education Teacher. I have spent the past 5 years in Culpeper County as a Special Education Teacher and Designee. I earned my Master’s Degree in Special Education from Old Dominion University in 2011 and my Educational Specialist Degree from The University of Virginia in 2017. My husband, John, and I reside in Culpeper, with our dog and 2 cats. In my spare time, I enjoy running, crafting, and cooking.
It is my commitment to foster a learning environment in which our students are able to develop academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. Along with the teachers and staff, I will continue to work in partnership with students, families, and the community to ensure that students develop the strong mind, strong heart, and strong effort needed to reach their own personal goals. Through working together as a team, we will ensure that our students have the support that they need to be successful. I encourage our students to try something new and get involved in the many clubs and opportunities available to them at Hampton Oaks. 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 2019-2020 school year.
