Barbara Barnet - Educational Consultant
Barbara Barnett began her educational experience in a one room school in South Dakota and went on to receive her undergraduate degree with a double degree in Special Education and Elementary Education from Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD.  After six years in the classroom, she embarked on developing her professional career by accepting an invitation from Johns Hopkins University where she earned her Master in Special Education.  Barbara continued her work with special needs children during this time in Bel Air, Maryland while implementing programs and projects from Johns Hopkins University.

Upon moving with family to South Carolina, Barbara taught at Heathwood School in Pre-K.  With the next move to Tampa Florida, Barbara taught in the lower school at Berkeley Preparatory School.  In 1992 the family moved to Japan where her husband worked in the international financial services business.  When the position was re-assigned to Florida, Barbara taught 1st grade at Seminole Presbyterian School and established a resource program for accelerated students in grades 1- 6.  Finally, the family moved to Charlotte, NC where Barbara taught for 8 years in Pre-K and 1st grade at Charlotte Country Day School.

Leadership roles as First Grade Team Leader, Lower School Academic Council Leader, Literacy Team Representative, Special Areas Team Leader, and honor of the Lower School Faculty Award at CCDS have been positions and opportunities of reward in her professional field. 

Barbara is a celebrated educator of 20 plus years involving both the private and public school sector.  Her entire teaching life has been dedicated to the development of the love of learning for all children through the acquisition of learning strategies enabling each child to be a successful learner. From her beginning in the one room school, to her revered educational background and continued education of best practices, her desire to share her love of learning with her students, parents and family are her daily goals.

Currently, Barbara and Educational Consultant Iris Hines-Flamer, direct educational services for students and families to enrich and support learning opportunities through LEARN Strategies.  She and her husband enjoy painting, reading, and traveling; most of all, visits from their two sons Chris, a graduate of George Washington University and Ryan who is studying at UNC Asheville.
