2017-2018 5th Grade Supply List

Amanda Barnett is the 5th Grade teacher at Calvary Classical School. She has gained educational experience in a variety of ways, as a Montessori classroom assistant, a special education paraprofessional, a 1st and 5th grade teacher, elementary language arts tutor, and a homeschool mom. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degrees in Anthropology and History from Texas State University. Her two children, Parker and Viola, also attend CCS.

Mrs. Barnett’s approach to teaching can be summed up in this quote from Charlotte Mason (an early 20th century education reformer): “Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education.”
