Welcome to Mrs. Barrie's Page

Meet Mrs. Barrie

I am Mrs. Amy Barrie, and I teach 5th and 6th grade reading at Crescent Elementary.  The 2020-2021 school year will be my fifth year at Crescent, although I've been teaching for seventeen years.  I've taught in Oklahoma, Illinois, Kansas, and Arkansas; ages eigtheen months through high school; and nearly every subject under the sun.
I grew up in Kansas and didn't move from the house I grew up in untill I got married in 2000 when I moved to Illinois.  My husband, Matt, and I have lived in five states, seven towns, and seventeen houses in the twenty years we've been married.  We currently live in Mulhall and have resided there for ten years, six of which have been on our farm.  We have three children: Keyra, who lives in OKC with her husband and our granddaughter, Thea; Kaylynn, who is a Junior this year at Crescent; and Asher, who is in Kindergarten at Crescent.
I am not much of a sports fan unless I personally know the people who are playing.  I love going to my students' games and other events, I just don't always know when they are so you have to tell me in advance. Eventhough I've lived in Oklahoma most of my adult life and both of my children were born here, I do not have a preference between OSU and OU...sorry.   I am a University of Kansas Jayhawk basketball fan.  I don't watch much but do keep track of how they are doing.  
I LOVE food and I LOVE to cook!!!  Cooking and eating are two of my favorite things to do (behind reading, of course).  I also enjoy sharing my food with people and cooking for groups of people.  Although I love food, I'm not a huge chocolate fan.  I appreciate good chocolate now and then, but I can do without it and be just fine.  As far as candy goes, my favorites are original Starbursts,  just about anything gummy (gummy bears, worms, sours...), and Werther's caramels (my mouth is watering).  
Reading is my passion, and has been for a long time.  I read a lot of different books, because the books on my classroom shelves are all previewed before they are read by students.  Some books I really enjoy reading, but there are others that I don't really like...and it's okay to not like a book.  I think it's important to read all different genres (or types of books) to be a well rounded reader.  This is why I require my students to read a different genre each month of school.  Many people just read one type of book because they know they like that style, but there are lots of other genres.  I have even had students tell me that they hate reading.  I say they just haven't found the right book yet.  I encourage students to get out of their comfort zones and try something new.
