Mr. Barrett

I have been a teacher since 1986. I have always worked for Saint Paul Public schools. I have been a fifth grade teacher, sixth grade teacher, 4-6 science specialist, director of an outdoor education classroom, an engineering teacher for several years and now the Aerospace Coordinator for the 5-8 campus.

We are looking for coaches for our Lego Robotics, Renewable Energy and other STEAM classes..

My new office is in 1304, near the main office.  

I am cooordinating all aerospace related field trips.  I manage Space Camp/Aviation Challenge for 6th and 8th grade students,  Washington DC for 7th grade students and Seattle Washington for 5th grade.   I also organize guest speakers like Astronauts and science visitors.  I am also working with fellow teachers to infuse aerospace into our daily curriculum.  

This year, 2021-2022, I am also the Flight Simulator Instructor.  We are upgrading our simulators to the newest software, Microsoft Flight Sims 2020.  Check it out here:  It is truly amazing.  We also hope to install and develop Virtual Reality technology to enhance our science and careers education.

If you have a desire to influence a student to become more engaged in STEAM, please reach out to me.  I would love to talk with you.
