Suzan Barkley


I am a true Texan and grew up in the Dallas area. I attended University of North Texas (while I was there, it was North Texas State University). While my daughter was in Pre-K at another school, I started subbing there and realized how much I enjoyed teaching and here I am 14 years later. I love teaching at my church and can’t imagine doing anything else. I have been married 23 years and have an 18 year old daughter.

What do most people not know about you? In middle school and high school, I competed in Roller Skating.  Mainly speed skating but I added figure skating to please my Mom. To this day, certain songs from that era still jazz me up!

Words to live by: Not sure I should admit this, but… “Pull up your big girl panties and get over it”

Favorite Scripture: Fear not, he brings good news of great joy for all people.  Luke 2:10

Dream Vacation:  Hawaii, where we were married (before they were called destination weddings)

First Car: 1978 Toyota Corolla

Favorite Television Show: This is Us

Favorite Movie: Forrest Gump or True Lies
