2015-2016 BPS Teacher of the Year

Barnwell Primary is pleased to announce our 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Farmer Brown. Mrs. Brown has been teaching at BPS over 20 years. She is a caring and compassionate teacher, who obviously enjoys her job. She uses interesting and innovative ideas in her classroom, and tries to give each student exactly what they need. She has a pleasant attitude and is encouraging to her students while expecting them to behave and achieve to their potential. She holds her students to high standards and has high expectations for them, but at the same time, earns their love and respect. Mrs. Brown is skillful at her job, and has successfully taught at several grade levels. Congratulations, Mrs. Brown! We love you!

Barnwell Primary is raising funds to purchase a bronze garden sculpture similar to the one pictured below in memory of our beloved guidance counselor, Ms. Anita Wiggins, who passed away earlier this year.  Please donate any amount that you can to help with this important project by clicking on the DONATE NOW button below the picture.  Thank you!
