Associate of Art Degree
Hello, My name is Mariela Barnett,
I am excited to be a Special Education Paraprofessional at Baker. I moved from California 14 years ago and live in Mckinney with my husband Kevin and two kids Lennon and Eden. My kids have been students at Baker until Hughes opened and now I am happy that we will be back at Baker.
I graduated from Brooks College with an Associates of Arts degree and my major was fashion design. I worked in the swimwear industry for nine years until we move to Texas. I stayed at home with my first child for 2 years and sort of fell into teaching when my son's preschool needed a spanish teacher. I taught spanish at Friends in Christ for 4 years then I taught spanish and art at Crosspoint Clubhouse for the last 5 years. I absolutely loved teaching at Crosspoint but I am very grateful to have this new opportunity at Baker.
I m excited and can't wait to meet all of the students.
