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.
