Hello, my name is Melissa Barrett and I am the Speech Language Pathologist at Bimat Elementary. I love working in the Norris School District and love all of the support here at Bimat!
I have been working in education for the last 21 years. Originally, I taught kindergarten and 1st grade at Endeavour Elementary. Nine years ago, I switched over to the field of Speech Language Pathology and absolutely love it! It is truly one of the most rewarding jobs out there! I love to watch the students make so much growth!
I earned my BA in Liberal Studies, Teaching Credential, and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from CSUB. Then I earned my Masters in Speech Language Pathology from Idaho State University.
This summer, my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We took a trip to Europe and visited Spain, France, and Italy. It was fantastic! I have two daughters. Hannah is a junior and Emily is a freshman. I also have two dogs who are very spoiled! When I am not working, I love to travel. I still have a very long list of places I want to visit!!
