Mr. Robert (Bob) Barker
Welcome to the Fiercest of the Fierce teams here at Folsom Elementary. Mrs. Stowe, Mrs. Hale, and I are excited for the challenge of helping all of our students grow both academically and socially. We have high expectations for each and every student that walks through our classroom doors. It's our goal to make this school year the greatest year of your child's life.
A little about me:
I grew up and graduated just north of here in Denison, TX. After graduating from high school I joined the United States Air Force where I proudly served for 6 1/2 years before being medically retired. After leaving the Air Force I moved to Florida and attended Florida Atlantic University where I graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I spent the majority of my 18 1/2 year career teaching at the 4th and 5th grade levels. I also spent 4 years as a Science Resource teacher. This position gave me one of the greatest opportunities of my life, working with students from K-5 and exposing them to hands-on, problem solving, inquiry based science activities.
