Mrs. Susan Barnard

Welcome! I have been in the teaching profession for over 15 years-close to 20 years. Most of those years I spent teaching in the special education arena. I have had the opportunity to teach every grade level K-12 in a variety of locations and formats. I understand what our children will need to be successful in the world when they leave high school. I feel honored to be teaching kindergarten and have the opportunity to introduce the children to the wonderful world of learning. I want these children to understanding that learning is possible for every one of them. I want them to learn that education can be fun and a life long journey with endless rewards. I try make learning fun yet rewarding and educational at the same time. I know there will great days and days that are not that great.  However, I believe that educating the children is a team endeavor. That my working with the students and their parents/guardians together is the best way to help each child.  Please contact me any time there is question or concern. I will do my best to answer your questions. Remember teaching the children to become successful and ready for the next experience in life is my goal. I can only reach that goal if we work as a team-parents/guardian, student and teacher.

Learning is the foundation for the rest of your life and a journey without end.

I am looking forward to working with everyone in this new format.
