About Barbara

My name is Barbara R. and I have been working with students since 1972. I know that makes me sound "old", but I would rather say "experienced"! I have been a certified elementary school teacher in CT, MD, and GA. I've taught students in grades Pre-K through 5th grade. I have also developed after-school programs at my son's school and have tutored many students to assist them with homework and improve their academic skills.

My teaching experience took a new turn when I moved to NC. I was born and raised In Santiago, Chile and speak Spanish fluently. However, I did not become certified in Spanish and did not teach it at public school. While living in NC, I met the Headmaster of a new private school, funded by Nicholas Sparks, the author. They were looking for a Spanish teacher and I was hired. I taught grades 5 through 10 for four years and continued to tutor and substitute for two more years. I have recently moved to Milford and would love to continue teaching. I look forward to meeting you. It will be fun and you will learn!
