Faculty & Staff Directory
Ms. Barbara Barklow
Teaching: Honors Junior English, Monsters and Misfits, Senior English A/B
Ms Barklow started her teaching career at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH before coming to Thornton Academy in the fall of 2005.
Ms Barklow grew up in Concord, NH and her love of reading and literature started in the second grade when she was introduced to Nancy Drew. When she realized she wasn't going to be a girl detective with a cool car, she studied English and Theater at Lafayette College in Easton, PA.
When not teaching, Ms Barklow loves good film (Hitchcock & noir) and books (she still loves a good mystery), spending time with family and friends, and traveling when she gets a chance. Every time she assigns a paper, she does empathize with her students, having spent many summers working on her Master's Degree in Literature at the Bread Loaf School of English, Middlebury College. And while she enjoyed writing papers surrounded by the beauty of Santa Fe, NM and the mountains of Vermont, she is happy to have earned her degree in June of 2013.
