Mrs. Dana Barger


I am thrilled to be a part of the RTMS staff. I know it will be an awesome year.  This will be my 15th year teaching, and my fourth year at Thornton. I will be teaching Health/PE and coaching volleyball, track and soccer. I absolutely love what I do and have a passion for working with children in the classroom and on the field.  

I am a 1997 graduate of Texas A&M University and earned my Bachelor of Science degree In Interdisciplinary Studies. Whoop!

My husband Matt and I have lived in Sienna Plantation for the past 15 years with our two children Kailey-19 and Zachary-17.  I am an avid runner and in my free time enjoy exercising and watching my children in their different sporting events.

I know it is going to be an incredible year! 

Go Thundercats!!!
