About Barbara

I am currently a 7th grade ELA teacher in inner city Albany. I have held a position in this school for 5 years. In the short time here, I have been designated as the Head of the English Department, and the school’s Reading Specialist. I am especially proud of the fact that over 89 percent of my students passed last year’s state assessment, a dramatic increase of 37 percentage points from before my appointment to this position. This success is directly attributable to my Backward by Design planning, ensuring all state standards are learned, my differentiated instruction, and most importantly, the value I place on engaging lessons. I work very diligently to ensure all my students learn and use data driven instruction to facilitate this learning. Finally, this success comes from the great personal connections I have made with my students and their families. I am currently a 7th grade ELA teacher in inner city Albany.
