New Teacher Spotlight

We asked Mrs.Barfield why she became a teacher, her reply was “ever since she was little she wanted to become a teacher and she always knew she wanted to work with older kids.” She states the best part of her job is the weird conversations that randomly pop up out of nowhere . Besides Give Center East, she has taught at North Western Middle school (North Fulton County) and Haymon Morris Middle school (Barrow county). We asked her what she thinks the biggest problem youth face today, she responded with social media.
