Mr. Barrett Bishop
Hello. My name is Barrett Bishop and I am proud to be the 5th Grade teacher for Science and Social Studies at Hickey Elementary. I have spent the past 20 years working in the corporate world primarily serving in various Lean / Continuous Improvement, Safety, and Quality roles in manufacturing. After spending Spring 2021 as a full-time substitute teacher, I discovered a passion for education, especially at the Elementary level. As a result I enrolled to get my teaching certification last year while also serving as the CTA for Hickey Elementary.
I have a wife who has worked for PISD for 20 years and we have two boys, one in elementary and one in middle school both also PISD students. Our family also includes two dogs and two cats, all rescued animals. In my spare time we like to travel, watch movies and tv, play games, or just read. I also play the Great Highland Bagpipes to “blow off” some steam.
My degrees include an MBA in finance and strategic leadership from Southern Methodist University and a BA in Psychology from the University of Arkansas where I was a member of the Razorback marching band. Go Hogs. I am also CPR certified and serve on the Hickey First Response team.
