To say Barry's resume is varied and interesting would be an understatement. Barry's route to a teaching career is a circuitous one. He didn't realize at a young age that he wanted to teach and credits his wife, Tami Wolff, also a teacher, for encouraging him to look into education while the two were students at Colorado State University. He held several jobs after college, but all the while, Tami always knew that she wanted to teach. Barry's first job was working with at-risk youth who were incarcerated. He would teach them and they would enter a treatment center, only to land back in jail, which he found disheartening. Barry realized he did in fact want to teach, but in a different setting. He traveled to Nepal, teaching Tibetan monks English, which gave him a "different perspective." Through the Peace Corps, he and his wife traveled to the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, where Barry headed up a school science department, providing another unique experience, until the two were evacuated via jet by the U.S. government when civil war broke out. Then there was a stint at a rural school in northern Wisconsin and a principalship that including teaching at the high school level at a K-12 school in an Alaskan village. The two also taught in Maine then traveled to Africa before landing in Fort Collins to settle into permanent positions and start a family.
