After 43 years in education Tecumseh Language Arts teacher Sharon Barnett is retiring.

According to Barnett, she felt this year was the best time to retire and be with her family.

“(I’m retiring) mostly for family and wanting to spend more time with my grandchildren,” Barnett said. “I’m going to help them. I’m going to be their teacher.”

Barnett grew up in Tecumseh and attended Tecumseh Public Schools.

“I went from first grade through until I graduated in 1974,” Barnett said.

The educator attended Seminole State College, Southeastern Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma, where she received her degree in education.

Barnett has taught kindergarten, second, forth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades at various schools including Seminole, Macomb and Tecumseh throughout her career.
