Mrs. Roxanne Barnes
Hi! My name is Mrs. Roxanne Barnes! I’m 37 years young! I will be your child’s 3rd-grade teacher for the 2022-2023 school year! This will be my 9th year teaching at Hickey Elementary and I am excited to make this my best year! I am a Google Certified Educator, the Hickey AVID Site Coordinator, and one of the coaches for the Hickey Botstars with Mr. Ruiz.
I was born in Houston, TX but moved to Garland when I was 3. There I attended Ruth Roach Elementary for K-5th grade. I then attended Sam Houston Middle School before graduating from Garland High School in 2003.
In May of 2011, I graduated with an Associate’s of Art in Teaching from Richland Community College. Then in December of 2014, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas Woman’s University with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I'm currently in grad school at WGU! I'm getting my Master's in Education in Learning and Technology and will graduate in May 2023!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jeremiah, and our 2 dogs, Thor and Finn. I love playing video games, reading (on my Kindle and physical books), crafting, and growing my collection of plants! My best friend and I hold season tickets to the Dallas Summer Musicals and I can't wait to see Hamilton again! I also enjoy increasing my professional learning! I'm one of the leaders of the Google Educator Group of North Texas.
