Ms. Barber

I’m Mrs. Barber and I am a first grade teacher at Yale Elementary School. I have been a teacher with Aurora Public Schools for 17 years and this is my 16th year at Yale. I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, and reading. I love to be outdoors!

This year, we will be working with a lot of technology. We will mainly use Google Classroom, Seesaw, and Class Dojo.

We have so much to learn this year! In reading, we will use phonics to help decode words. We will learn about short and long vowels, blends, and diagraphs. We will make sure we always understand and can talk about what we read. In math, we will learn adding and subtracting within 20. We will learn place value and counting to 120. I can’t wait to meet our new first graders! This will be a great year!
