Mr. Robert Battey - Barsanti ES Acting Principal

Mr. Battey is joining our Barsanti Family as our new assistant principal. He is moving his family here from the greater Chicago, Illinois area and is looking forward to serving the students, staff and families at Barsanti Elementary School. Mr. Battey began pursuing a career in education while working as a middle school custodian. In 2005, he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State University and went on to spend several years teaching 2nd and 4th grade in the Plainfield, Illinois School District. In 2009, Mr. Battey earned his Master’s Degree in Education Administration from Governor’s State University and in 2012 was appointed Assistant Principal. In 2015, he began serving as principal in the Yorkville School District in Illinois. Mr. Battey is excited to be joining DoDEA. His father is a veteran of the Army having served at Fort Bragg, N.C. during the Vietnam Conflict Era. His grandfather served in the Army during World War I. As his life has progressed, Mr. Battey has had the desire to serve his country as his family has before him. DoDEA is a natural fit as it allows Mr. Battey to continue to positively influence education while serving our military families. Please help us in welcoming Mr. Robert Battey as he transitions to Barsanti Elementary School.
