Kelly Barrick PictureHello!
My name is Kelly Barrick and I am an 8th grade English-Language Arts teacher at Friendly Hills Middle School.  Although I am from Minnesota, I began my teaching career in 2004 in Brooklyn, New York after graduating from St. Catherine University in St. Paul.  I taught middle school in NYC for a number of years before becoming a teacher leadership coach. I also earned my Masters of Science in Literacy from Touro College in Manhattan.  After 10 years in NYC, my family relocated to Southern California for a change of pace.  I taught 8th grade in Oceanside, CA for a few years before coming back to Minneapolis in 2017. 2017 is my first year with ISD 197, my 14th year overall, and I am very excited to work and learn in this district! In my free time, I like to run my kids around to lots of activities, attend sporting events and concerts, collect young adult literature, write, and learn new things.
