Mr. Josh Jurgens
Special Education Teacher
Welcome parents and students! I am currently in my 11th year in education, and my 4th with Platte County. Before joining the Barry team, I enjoyed three years teaching elementary special education in both the St. Joseph and Liberty School Districts. I am looking forward to helping students learn, grow, and lead this year!
I am a proud Bearcat having received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Northwest Missouri State University. Outside of my career, I enjoy spending my time with my wife (Jill) and three daughters (5 & 7 years old....and our smallest entered our world in May.) My hobbies (when there is time) include reading, exercising, and watching my Chiefs and Royals.
