4th Grade Teacher
Barry Elementary

Hello, my name is Nancy Denig and I am a 4th grade teacher at Barry Elementary School. I am so excited to start another year, and I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing school.  I grew up in Dearborn, Missouri and currently live in Parkville with my husband and three boys. I graduated from Missouri Western State University in 1996 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Early Childhood.  Immediately following my graduation from college I got married and moved to Chicago where I began the certification process to teach in Illinois. We lived there for 1 1/2 years then my husband's job relocated us back home to Missouri.  I began my teaching career in 1998 at Mid Buchanan Elementary School where I taught 3rd grade.  After 7 years,  I decided to take a break and spend my time raising my family.  Currently, my boys are well on their way to being young adults and I am back to teaching!!  In my free time I enjoy watching my youngest son play football and baseball, hanging out at our lake house, reading mystery novels and baking every chance I get!! I hope you are ready for an amazing year to remember, I know I am!

Together we will make this a successful year of learning, laughter and fun!!
