Meet the Teacher


Barbie Roper.. I have heard every joke there is about my name!  I am a Barbara but no one ever calls me that!  I grew up in Oregon and went to college at Whitworth University in Spokane, WA.  I have a BA in psychology and a MA in Elem Ed.  I went back to school to be a teacher after working with kids with behavior issues.  My husband hates taking pictures hence none of him on here but my other love Kaden loves it!  I have taught kindergarten at the same school for the last 10 years!  It is great place to work! We have one dog coco and two cats!  



Kaden and I in the car waiting until his practice started!
