My name is Barbara and I have been a paraprofessional/teacher's aide for 12 years, and in August 2011 earned my Master's Degree in secondary education. I worked for seven years in the school of a residential treatment facility. I worked with students with varying degrees of mental and emotional disabilities. The last five years I have worked at a local public middle school, concentrating in assisting in reading, social studies, and math.

I am friendly yet professional, and develop a rapport with students that allows them to feel trusting and safe in a learning environment.
