Degrees and Certifications:
I'm Carlos Barron and I teach PE! This is my 14th year teaching, but my first year at an elementary school. I come to Hickey Elementary from Bowman Middle School. I personally enjoy working out, riding bikes with my son and hiking (when I can travel to places with mountains!) Staying active is important to maintain overall health and it's my goal to encourage students to work hard and have fun!
I was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. I graduated from Texas Tech with a degree in Exercise Sports and Science. I moved to Dallas in 2006 and am proud to be a North Texan!
I am happily married with three children. My oldest daughter, Jaylnn is also a teacher. I have two young children with my wife. My son, Noah, is a 4th grader and my youngest dauther Ava, is in preschool. We enjoy traveling to different places, especially where there is a beach!
On a typical weekend, you'd find me watching a college football game. If I could, I would fly to Miami to watch all the U home games. But, most of the time (ok 99% of the time) I watch from my living room. I also like going to the movies. Nothing beats movie-theater popcorn! The rest of the time, I'm at church, working on the lawn, taking my little one to gymnastics or doing projects around the house.
Those who know me well, know I'm a kid at heart and I try to see the positive in every situation. I'm looking forward to working with all the students and having a great year!
