About Barry

I am a life-long learner and have been a life-long educator. I was born and raised a Christian in Wisconsin along with two older sisters. My parents were loving and raised the children to love and be kind to others, as well as, doing unto others as you would have them do unto you. I attended Catholic elementary, middle and high schools and received an excellent pre-college education.

I further extended my learning through the University of Wisconsin System in Madison, Whitewater and Green Bay, receiving my Bachelor's degree from UW-Whitewater, majoring in science/biology and education. I received my Master's degree from Chicago State University in Guidance & Counseling followed by my Secondary Education Administrative Certification, also from CSU.

I began teaching science in 1966 followed by seven more years in various schools in the Mid-West. I served as a High School Guidance Counselor for six years; High School Assistant Principal for three years; High School Principal for nine-teen years in five different districts ending my career in 2003 from Altoona High School, Altoona, Wisconsin. In 2013 I became the Head Master at Agape Christian Academy (Pre-K through 8) for two and a half years where I did extensive tutoring as a condition of employment and because I loved working with the children one-on-one. It's most rewarding seeing the "light bulb" go on when children master concepts.

My education and experience are quite notable. I have been successful because I love childen, know the subject matter, have been a teacher/administrator and have the time to devote my attention to individualized instruction.

My life has been dedicated to education, serving others, training teachers, improving curriculum and believing all students can and will learn with the proper parental support, teacher caring attitudes and positive reinforcement. My mission would be their mission: learning to their fullest potential!!
