My name is Mark Head and I have been an enthusiastic member of the Barrett Elementary School family since 2018. I am excited to be teaching the first grade students. I have been involved in education since childhood as both my parents were educators. I graduated from Hampton University University in south eastern Virginia with a degree in political science. I attended graduate school in Connecticut and earned a master’s degree in teaching from Sacred Heart University in Connecticut. I received my administrative certification at the University of Virginia and served as teacher and administrator for many years in Fairfax County. I am an avid swimmer and enjoy teaching lessons to children and adults.
