Mrs. ViCindy Barnett, BA, MA

Here is a little information about myself, Mrs. Barnett

I graduated with my Master's Degree from Sul Ross State University in 2008. It was from Sul Ross State University that earned my Bachelor's Degree. Currently, I am currently enrolled with Ashland University in Ohio where I am working on a second Masters for a Ph.D. in Philosophy.

I grew up in the Fort Stockton and Alpine, TX area. I have a son who has attended Texas A&M and has completed his Doctorate Degree in Anthropology/Archeology. I also have a step-daughter who is married and has blessed us with three boys and a step-son. He and his wife have one son, the oldest of the grandsons, plus a girl who is on her way.

I love gardening, cooking, and working on DIY home projects. My lifelong hobby has been: 4-H, ranching, livestock showing and rodeoing. 

My passion has been history and government, Texas and Federal. Now a dream is to share my love for these passions with your student.


                                            What Do You Make?


The dinner guests were sitting around

the table discussing life. One man, a

CEO, decided to explain the problem

with education. He argued: "What's a

kid going to learn from someone who

decided his best option in life was to

become a teacher?" ... He said to another

guest: "You're a teacher, Susan," he said.

"Be honest. What do you make?"


Susan, who had a reputation of honesty

and frankness, replied, "You want to

know what I make?"


"I make kids work harder than they every

thought they could. I can make a C+

feel like the Congressional Medal of

Honor and an A- feel like a slap in the

face if the student did not do his or her

very best."


"You want to know what I make?"

"I make kids wonder."


"I make them question."


"I make them criticize."


"I make them apologize and mean it."


"I make them write."


"I make them read, read, read."


"I make them show all their work in

math and hide it all on their final drafts

in English."


"I elevate them to experience music and

art and the joy in performance, so their

lives are rich, full of kindness and

culture, and they take pride in

themselves and their accomplishments."


"I make them understand that if you

have the brains, then follow you

heart...and if someone ever tries to

judge you by what you make, you pay

them no attention."


"You want to know what I make? 



"By the way, what do you make?"
