Congratulations, Mrs. Barbiero, Educator of the Month for March! Janet Barbiero has been teaching for 15 years, and 14 of those years have been at Monte Vista. She spent 10 of those years in fifth grade and four years in fourth. When asked why she teaches fifth grade, Mrs. Barbiero responded with, “I love the curriculum and the age of the students. They are independent, still nice and are not just learning about themselves but about the world around them. They get humor and are fun to engage in conversations.” Mrs. Barbiero says she really loves teaching 5th grade!
