Meet The Fifth Grade Team
Hi everyone, my
name is Patrick Carmack. I am a 5th Grade teacher and I am super excited
about the upcoming school year! I've lived and worked in Virginia for most of my life and recently moved to Arlington. I just
got married to my beautiful wife Maggie and we have a crazy little dog named
Zero. I grew up in Springfield, VA and
Forest and Hayfield for
elementary and middle school. I then made my commute a little further
traveling to Washington, D.C.
everyday attending Gonzaga
High School (Go Eagles!).
I got my teaching degree from Widener
University in Chester,
PA and received my Master's degree from George Mason
University. I grew
up playing ice hockey in New York
and still currently play at Kettler on the weekends. I also started
playing lacrosse when I was in 4th grade and played in both high school and
college. I really enjoy traveling to places I've never been and jumping
in any ocean during the summer. I'm so glad to be at Barrett and look
forward to a great year!
name is Mrs. Sanders, and I am so excited to be here at Barrett! More importantly, I am thrilled to be your
teacher! I want to know all about you,
but first I’ll tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas,
and I’m the middle child with 2 older siblings and 2 younger siblings. I did my
undergraduate course work at the University of North Texas and graduate work at
the University of Texas at Arlington. I am married to a fabulous man named
Shane, and we have a son who is two, named Nicolas.
I have taught second through fifth
grades, and this will be my 14th year of teaching. Fifth grade is a very
important year, as your child will be making the transition into middle school next year, so we will be working on maturing as readers and writers, as well as
becoming mathematicians and scientists. I can already tell that this school
year is going to be filled with enthusiasm and lots of learning!
