Barber takes the time to really get to know her students and what is important to them.  This allows her to connect and motivate them to do their best work in the classroom.  She takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary such as with virtual field trips, 3D goggles, and QR codes.  She teaches the values of hard work, uses innovation, and strives daily to achieve academic excellence.
