Ms. Deanna Barbosa

My name is Deanna Barbosa and I am beyond excited to be joining Brinker Elementary as a 1st grade teacher. This will be my second-year teaching as I have previously taught kindergarten at another school in Plano.  I went to West Texas A&M University where I received my bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, I am ESL certified and have also taught ESL to children and adults in Mexico 2 years ago. I moved to Plano a year ago in which I am still new to the DFW area and really enjoy my free time exploring new places. I have always had a huge heart for learning and working with kids, I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was in elementary school, and I absolutely love what I do! Apart from teaching, I love travelling, dancing and being with my family and friends. I can't wait to get this school year started and to be part of this community. Go bears!
