    Teacher Message:
     
    Dear students and families,
     
    It is a privilege to be a part of your child's math education!  I look forward to learning about your student's strengths, their interests, and what and who inspires them to attain an excellent education.  In my classroom, students will have a place of belonging that embraces every part of their identity and a learning community in which every student has a responsibility to each other to learn.  Math is one of the most important subjects because it opens the most academic opportunities in college.  Because of this, I will teach math with a sense of urgency and a sincere feeling of love for your student's future aspirations. Math is an incredible subject; my hope is that your student can experience the joy, wonder, and beauty of mathematics while perfecting their skills needed to critique the world around them.If you are interested in learning more about the courses I teach, please review the algebra syllabus and pre-calculus syllabus.
     
    Looking forward to working with you,
    Ms. Barrios

    Biography:
     
    I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in sociology and mathematics from the University of San Diego.  While there, I was a member of various academic and community based organizations.  I truly enjoyed my time while at college and learned a tremendous amount of who I am as an indvidual.
     
    I live with my husband and beautiful baby daughter, Amelia, and our boxer/red heeler dog, Asher.

    I moved to St. Louis when I graduated college to teach math at Gateway STEM High School.  In 2012, I recieved my Master's of Secondary Math Education from the University of Missouri, St. Louis.  I graduated with my Master's degree in Educational Administration from UMSL this past May.  Hopefully in a few years I serve as a school leader in a secondary school.
     
    At Gateway, I am involved with Cultural Day, our annual celebration of our students' diverse identities, and for several years I was a mentor for Gateway's robotics team.  I have also led the Show Me Costa Rica Project at Gateway STEM where we create experiential learning opportunities for students to study biology and Costa Rican culture in Costa Rica.  Our students learn entrepreneurship skills, public speaking skills, and gain international travel experience throughout the ten-month program.
