Mrs. Debbie Barineau

      Hello! My name is Debbie Barineau, and I am so thrilled to have your child in my Language Arts/Reading class this year.  It is going to be an incredible year! This is my fourteenth year at Hays and my twenty-fifth year to teach.    I am excited to teach students to love reading and writing, and I feel blessed to have your child. I graduated from Harding University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and a Masters of Education in Reading.

     Teaching is my passion, and my goal this year is for your child to be successful, challenged, excited, and confident about learning.  Our classroom will be a warm and inviting atmosphere, where your child’s strengths and weaknesses will be embraced! Fifth grade is an exciting time to thrive academically, socially and personally.  I look forward to embracing your child as an individual and encouraging them daily to reach their goals. Please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions you may have. With your partnership, fifth grade will be a year to remember!
