Colleen Barrese is a dedicated and compassionate third grade teacher at Jackson Park Elementary School. She believes that her students should have a stable, loving, and stimulating environment in which to grow and mature. It is important to Colleen that each of her students has a voice and is heard. Colleen not only plans individual learning that best meets the needs of each student in her class, but she also recognizes and celebrates the growth of every student. One parent said, “She knows how to motivate them, what makes them tick, and how to get them to fall in love with learning.”

 

Colleen integrates fun and practical lessons in her classroom to get her students excited about learning. For example, she turns a simple cup lid into a force and motion experiment or designs a garden while studying area and perimeter and then actually has the garden built. You can often walk by her classroom windows and see math problems written in dry erase marker. These are just a few examples of why Colleen’s students love being in her class and love going to school.

 

We are extremely proud that Colleen is part of our Kannapolis City Schools’ family, and we are delighted that Hilbish Ford is honoring her excellence with the Hilbish Ford Teacher of the Month Award. Congratulations!
