Ms. Barnett-Loro

This is my second year as a teacher with DPS. Before Ignite! I taught 4th and 5th grade in Wake County. I grew up in Durham and graduated from Meredith College with a degree in Spanish as well as my license to teach elementary school. I live in Durham now with my husband, Greg, our kiddo, Wren, and our dog, Oliver. When I am not teaching, I enjoy hiking, reading, traveling, and gardening!

Ms. Campbell

I am thrilled to join the amazing Ignite Online Academy community as a 3rd grade teacher! I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from UNCG and went on to earn my Masters of Education from UNC. This will be my 11th year teaching and I have taught both elementary and middle school students, but my favorite has always been 3rd grade! In my freetime, my husband and I love to travel and spend time with our baby, a boxer-pitbull, Rocket.
