Welcome to the Media Center!

Mrs. Barrett, Library Media Specialist

(417) 466-3137, ext 2021

I'm Mrs. Barrett and this is my 23rd year in education.  I taught middle school language arts for nine years and this is my 14th as a media specialist.  I have a teaching degree from Emporia State University and a master's in library science from the University of Missouri (Don't tell my Kansas family!)  My husband and I have two daughters, five acres, and a 1970s house that we're (slowly) updating.  I also love reading, traveling, baking, camping, Royals baseball, sour gummies, my couch, and anything with Buffalo sauce.  I'm so blessed to be a part of Mt. Vernon Middle School where I get to do what I love every day!  Please stop by and let me know how I can help you!  :)
