Mick

Over the summer Miss Barrell got married and is now Mrs. Mick! This is her 3rd year at Millersport Elementary. She graduated from The Ohio State University with her Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Childhood Education in 2012. She then went on to receive her Master’s Degree in Middle Childhood Education with a concentration of math, science, and social studies in 2014 from Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Mrs. Mick will be teaching 5th and 6th grade science as well as a section of 5th grade math.


Outside of school, Mrs. Mick enjoys boating with her family, going to concerts, and watching the Buckeyes. She is so grateful to be a part of a wonderful community like Millersport and looks forward to many more years to come.
