• Hi! My name is Ms. Nirali Patel! I will be your child's 2nd grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year.  I have previously taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade before, but 2nd graders are my FAVORITE! This is my 10th year as a teacher and my fifth year at Barretts. I am excited to make this the best year yet!

    I grew up in Creve Coeur, Missouri where I attended Bellerive Elementary.  I then attended Northeast Middle School and later graduated from Parkway North High School.  In High School I spent most of my time singing in choir, spending time with friends, and playing lacrosse.  

    In May 2010 I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Mizzou. I also received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Mizzou a year later in 2011.  

    I just recently bought a house and have been super busy with all sorts of house projects!

    I love my family and friends so much, especially my sweet puppy Nala and my adorable nieces Cora and Elin.  Check them out below :).
