Trish Barkman is honored to join a community of professionals dedicated to developing lifelong learners. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English/Secondary Education at the State University of New York College at Cortland.
After raising two daughters who became professional women in their own right, Ms. Barkman returned to the classroom in 2006. She served the Keller ISD in a supporting role as a long term substitute. The Westlake community welcomed her in 2015 in the same role.
Ms. Barkman joined Westlake Academy as a full-time staff member in the Fall of 2017. She teaches Language Arts in the Middle Years Programme. The opportunity to become a full time staff member at Westlake Academy affords her the opportunity to develop consistent relationships with her students. The cornerstone to effective learning rests on these relationships and she is committed to contributing her time and talent to help her students realize their dreams.
In her free time, she and her husband Ron enjoy spending time with their grandchildren in Boerne, Texas and visiting family in New York.
