Mrs. Barbara Forsberg
Special Education Teacher
Much of my professional experience includes working with students who have learning and emotional-behavioral disabilities, but I'm also passionate about language arts and technology. Inspiring kids to make a difference in the world is something I also love; advising an after-school student volunteer group called the Difference Makers brings me a lot of joy.
Middle school students are quirky, fun, and often unpredictable; every day is unique, and that’s what I love about teaching at PCMS. A student recently asked me,”Why do I have to do the work I missed when I was gone?! It’s in the past!!” That’s just one humorous aspect of teaching middle school that brings me back (smiling) every day.
