Ms. Barbara Woodworth

Welcome to the 2022 -2023 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 21 years and love it as much today as I did the first day I started!  I have been teaching 3rd grade for 18 years and still find it rewarding.  I 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.
