Suzanne Barnett

Suzanne Barnett comes to St. Martha with 15 years of experience as an educator. Mrs. Barnett earned her Bachelor of Arts in Biology from the University of Louisville. After completing her bachelor’s degree, she moved on to Bellarmine University to complete her Master of Arts in Teaching and her Education Specialist in Instructional Leadership degree. Mrs. Barnett’s husband, John, is a 1993 graduate of St. Martha and her oldest son, Ethan, is a 2019 graduate.  Her three younger children – Noah, Peyton, and Quinn – are all currently students at the school.

“As a leader, I make knowing individuals a priority - students, teachers, and staff. It is very important to me to know those who I am working with and for, as relationships are key in creating a quality learning environment.”

Q & A with Mrs. Barnett

Highlight of the Year:

The beginning of the school year is definitely my favorite time of the year! Teachers are rested and rejuvenated and students are ready to get back to work. The excitement that surrounds the newness of the year in energizing for me!

Passion:

Education is my passion. Helping students and teachers work to meet their fullest potential is what I love doing.

Philosophy:

Everyone is capable of learning. As an education professional, it is my job to instill a growth mindset in students, help each one find their passion, and cultivate life-long learners.

Favorite part of teaching:

The thing I love most about being an educator is how much I have learned through the relationships I have had with my students and fellow educators. I am a better teacher, parent, and person because of each and every one of my students. I can only hope that I’ve had a fraction of the impact on my students as they’ve had on me throughout the years.

My favorite thing about St. Martha:

There are so many wonderful things about the St. Martha community, but the pride in our school is probably my most favorite. Whether it’s our students, our teachers, or our parents, everyone feels like they are a part of who we are and this shows in all that we do!

My hope for my students:

My hope for my students is that they realize their potential and strive to live up to it in all that they do. I also hope that each one embraces what makes them unique and is lucky enough to find their passion in life.
