The Basics:

Hello! My Name is Mrs. Katie Barefoot! I am 31 years young. I’m married to a wonderful man named John Derrick, and we are blessed with two little wildflowers: Hattie (4) and Lila (2). We live in Vale with our Miniature Schnauzer, Albie. I love to spend time with my family, travel, watch my favorite movies/shows, and teach! Also—I’m a HUGE Disney nerd! =)


I have been teaching in N-CCS since 2015.

My teaching license includes:

-Special Education: General Curriculum

-Special Education: Adapted Curriculum

*I have taught in all areas listed above and love them all! I pride myself in my teaching experiences and truly love teaching, no matter the child or environment!

Teaching children is my absolute joy in life! I love building relationships and nurturing students’ academic and functional growth. I love having a hand in shaping and molding the minds of our future! My mission it to teach/guide students to be successful and meet their goals!

My Education:
