Ms. Barbara Woodworth
Welcome to the 2020 -2021 school year!! My name is Barbara Woodworth and I am always so excited at the beginning of a new school year!! I have been teaching in the Matteson School District 162 for 19 years and love it as much today as I did the first day I started! I have been teaching 3rd grade for 16 years and still find it rewarding and look forward to finding innovative ways to help children to develop a love of learning that will last their entire lifetime!! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education that I received from Governor's State University and a Master's Degree in Administration from Olivet Nazarene University. I firmly believe that all children can learn and achieve success, and that parents and teachers can work together as a team to make it an awesome year of growth, discovery and significance for your child. This year will be more challenging with Covid-19 and remote learning but if we work as a team we will accomplish great things.
