She abuses her power all she wants to do is suspend student the whole point of school is to learn. How can you learn if you are at home the system is not right Dr.Rice needs to go elsewhere.

i totally disagree with you, if the child would not have disrupted the other students then the child would still be in school instead of being suspended. i think it was in the best intrest of the other students that if they cant learn because the teacher has to focus on that child then they should be suspended. the parent should have thought the child to act like a muture young adult.

i personally think she will make a great assistant pricipal. she will do alot better than the ones we have now. maybe they wont have any bomb threats next year with her being one of the people in charge. think about it how many did we have this past year? just because you dont like the barrett family does not mean everyone dont like them.

If we have an Asst. Prin. why do we need an AD.

The AD is the Athletic Director. Supposed to be in charge of all athletic programs in the district. In most smaller schools and even larger ones, the AD is also the Head Football Coach.

The Assistant Principal is usually over campus discipline among other duties.

So the AD and the AP are two different jobs.

I know the difference, but back we didn't have an AD, AP did the work. you walk and chew pretty easy.

Who are you to question the educators who give so much for so little money, praise or reconition from the parents?

I'll tell you who I am. I am a tax paying citizen who pays school tax with no children in this district. In a small 2-A school someone please tell me why we need a super who is making the money he is, an AD and lord knows how many coaches, APs at each school? In a small 2-A school? Not. Take that money and give it to the teachers and get some who will teach and care. I'm not saying they all don't teach and don't care, but pay a decent salary to the ones who teach these kids everyday.

I don't know how much the Super makes and I don't know at this time how many coaches we will have on staff. Maybe you can get a copy of the budget at the main office. But - there are only 2 assistant principals in this district. One at the elementary and one at the high school.

Sounds like some of you are parents of the students in Ms. Barrett's classes. If you're complaining about her it more than likely because you're children are just as disrespectful as you are. Try teaching your children some manners and respect. She would not "use her power" against a student who was undeserving.

Lastly, if you think that the entire Barrett family is crazy. Obviously you are not familiar with all of them, so you should keep that to yourself, I'm sure that some people would say the same about yours Mr.Shackleford. I also wouldn't judge her by the actions of her other family members.

Pure Gossip - Maybe you should think before you write. You obviously know very little about school districts, probably being that you have no children. Everyone pays school taxes, deal with it, it's part of being a home/land owner. If you want teachers to make more money, why don't you ask for them to increase your taxes? There's more to being a super than you will ever know - it's Trinity there's several coaches for every sport - that's everywhere in Texas - Deal with it. If you realized how undisciplined the kids are (not all of them) in the Trinity school district you'd want more principles. I will say Trinity has a problem finding good teachers, and when they do find them, they have a hard time retaining them - that's the administration. Teachers make more money than you think, and more money than most people working in other industries. A new teacher in Texas base salary is over $32,000 with guaranteed increases every few years. That's really not that bad. Granted teachers have to put up with a lot, well you know what, so does everyone else - Deal with it - IT'S CALLED LIFE PEOPLE!!!

And for some of us, he was also the history teacher.

As a teacher in the district, I believe she was an excellent choice for principal. Her schools are headed in the right direction, both in discipline and education. The district in general has revamped our educational focus, what we were doing wasn't working. And when it comes to discipline, kids make bad decisions sometimes, and when those bad decisions effect the education of other students in the classroom trying to learn, then they do need to have an appropriate punishment for their actions.

Ms. Barrett is a wonderful person, teacher and principal!!! I have to say Ms.Barrett is not a control freak she will not put up with behavior problems!!! Ms. Barrett puts the needs of her students and staff first before herself. I do
not know who is writing all these ugly remarks about Ms. Barrett. As far as the family goes they volunteer hours on end to help out at the school. I think they are very close family and they support each other. Ms. Barrett has a add interest she is from Trinity and its also her home town. To all the parents out there you will not find a more caring, fair person then Ms. Barrett!!! In stead of being negative lets get behind our school and make them a better place for our children!!!!
