About Barbara


Bio

I love challenging students and when students finally get “it” it is cause for celebration! The fact that I have the ability to impact the way they look at themselves, life and the world around them is exciting and helping them to achieve their goals is exciting and gratifying.

It is important to recognize that students have individual learning needs and styles and I view myself as a facilitator, motivator and cheerleader.

I incorporate methods that are engaging and relevant to the students interest and current events.

I believe my job is to help students to succeed not place roadblocks in their way. I motivate students to dig deep to recognize and use their strengths and encourage them to work with me on their opportunity areas.
