Mrs. Laurie Barker
Welcome to Daphne Elementary School! I am so excited to be teaching your first grader this year. I am passionate about creating life-long learners who dream big and reach their full potential. I have taught first grade for several years and have one year of experience teaching second grade. I am so excited about this year and all the things we will be learning about.
I am a native to Baldwin County. I went to Baldwin County schools, Kindergarten-12thgrade. This is home to me. I look forward to giving back to the school system that poured so much into me.
I am married to my wonderful husband, Justin. We have two biological girls (13 & 10) and one biological son (born May, 2019). We have also had the privilege of adopting two daughters (4 & 11) and a son (3). Yes, that makes a grand total of 6 kids and we love every minute of it.
When I am not at school or being a mom, I love going to the beach, photography and any craft I can get my hands on.
