Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Dana Barnett

Welcome to fourth grade! I've been teaching 4th grade as a Mustang since 2006. I also taught for two years in Glenview, Ill., in fourth and fifth grades. Before becoming a teacher, I spent 13 years in marketing and advertising. I loved it, but teaching is my passion, so I had to follow my heart. I've never looked back. I have a master’s of education in teaching and learning from DePaul University, Chicago, and a bachelor’s in business marketing from Northern Illinois University. I also spent some time as an undergrad at the University of Iowa.  Go Hawks! My goal is to instill confidence, empathy, independence, and the persistence to work through the challenges that come with learning and life. I am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and fun with your child. When I am not teaching, I enjoy kickboxing, listening to live music, and spending time with my family and rescue dog, Booker.
