Hello, and welcome to the studio!


About Me:


My name is Sarah Barrentine, and I'm happily entering my eleventh year of teaching and my seventh year at Akins Early Collge High School. I look forward to working with all of you during the 2021-2022 school year, which we're sure to make a special and memorable one.


In 2009, I graduated from The University of Memphis, where I majored in Art and English. Shortly after that, I began teaching Reading at Westwood High School in Memphis, Tennessee. After moving to Austin, I began teaching at LBJ High School, where I taught English to students in grades 9-12 for three years.  In 2015, I became a Reading teacher within the Department of English Language Learners at Akins, and this year is my fourth as a Visual Arts teacher.


It has been a joy to see my students learn, grow, graduate, go on to college and careers, and begin to do fantastic things with their lives. It is my honor to continue in what I consider to be one of the most important and rewarding professions in the world - teaching!


Please feel free to call or email me should you have questions or need assistance. Have a great year, Eagles!
