About Miss B
Hello Mustangs! My name is Emma Barkley, but I go by "Miss B". I am honored and excited to be a part of the wonderful Eanes community as a second grade teacher this year!
I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado and went to college at the University of Denver (Go Pios!). After college I moved to Dallas, where I began my teaching career and pursued my masters degree in Elementary Education through Johns Hopkins University.
I moved to Austin last year and LOVE it! I am so excited to be in a city with such wonderful people, nature, and places to explore. I am also so thankful to be closer to many of my friends and family. Fun fact... my dad teaches at Westlake High School!
My favorite things to do are explore Austin, be with my friends and family, read, cook, and travel. When I'm not at school you can find me at Trader Joe's, in my garden, or in the sun. I love cheering on any sports game and going to concerts. More than anything, I love spending my time with my dog Stanley!
This will be eighth year of teaching, and my fifth year teaching 2nd grade. I love working with kids and getting to know them as students and people. There is nothing more rewarding than building relationships with students and cheering them on as they grow and achieve their goals. I am so grateful to be a part of the Eanes family. Let's have an amazing year!
Snow Dog Stanley!
Miss B in 2nd Grade!
My dad teaches Senior English at Westlake and coaches volleyball. Go Chaps!
I grew up in Colorado with my two sisters Mara and Ellyn. They both live in New York now!
