Hi! My name is Mrs. Baratta. I attended Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. I spent a year teaching in Colorado and then came back to the Omaha area. I have been teaching 5th grade at Bancroft since 2002. My Master's Degree in Literacy was earned from Concordia University in May, 2007. My husband and I live with our dog, Ralphie.
