Biography 

Hello class, 

My name is Ty Barrett and I am from Sapulpa, Oklahoma.  I am 25 years old and am from Sapulpa, Oklahoma, which is where I currently teach at as well. I teach at the junior high, this year teaching 8th grade US History (last year I taught 9th grade government as well). I also coach a couple of different sports, tennis and wrestling. I competed in both those sports when I was in high school and the school even still has a large banner of me wrestling hanging up in our gym. I received my undergraduate degree in history from the University of Oklahoma in the fall of 2020. 

On September 9th of this year I married my amazing wife Kaylyn and then we went on our honeymoon to Charleston, South Carolina, which was an especially fun city for me as a history nerd. I also have a fairly unique hobby as I train border collies to herd sheep and cattle and compete with them across the country. In 2021 I qualified and ran in both the USBCHA Sheep and Cattle Dog National Championships. I made the front page of several papers with my dog Kara in Virginia at the sheepdog finals. I am excited to use technology in this class and learn ways to become  more tech friendly for the classes I teach since my school is a 1:1 technology school.
