Mrs. Keeley Barr, M.Ed.
This is my 2nd year as the Instructional Coach at Pine Valley Middle School. Go Mustangs! This is my 7th year in a coaching role although I've held many titles: district Digital Innovation Specialist, campus Media Technology specialist, Master Teacher of ELAR/SS, and Reading and Intervention Specialist. I have taught grades kindergarten through fourth grade. I began my career in Schweinfurt Germany working for an American school on the Schweinfurt Garrison. I have also worked for Killeen ISD, Mabank ISD, and Tyler ISD before joining the New Caney ISD family. I have also lived in Naples, Florida and Adak, Alaska! My husband and I have been together for 19 wonderful years. We have 2 children, who attend New Caney schools, and 2 dogs. I love to travel, read, sew, and attend my children's extracurricular activities.
As an instructional coach, my role is to build capacity in our teachers. I will partner with teachers to model lessons, help with lesson design, learn new technologies, create assessments, and disaggregate data. I absolutely love working with my teachers to help serve our amazing students. My core values include: promoting literacy, learning, innovation, and integrity. I try to live these values in both my personal and professional life while striving to always be solution oriented. My favorite quote is by Maya Angelou, "Once you know better, you do better." As educators, we must always be striving to learn more about our craft. I look forward to a great year serving our school!
