Barnett Administration

Destini Martin-Principal

My name is Destini Martin and I have been the Principal at Barnett Elementary for the past four years. Before opening Barnett Elementary, I worked as the Principal at Kubacak Elementary for five years. I am a proud graduate of Santa Fe High School and have three children that attend school in SFISD. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and from University of Houston at Clear Lake with my Master’s in Educational Leadership.

It is very important to me that my staff and I build strong relationships with our students, parents, and each other. When our students walk through our doors, I want them to feel happy and loved. We have high expectations for our students and work hard to provide engaging lessons that connect with each child. Together, with the help of our supportive families, we will continue to strive to “Build the BEST at Barnett!
