Barbara is an inspiration to the thousands of children she has taught over the years. She is always enthusiastic, lively and encouraging. Barbara is involved in a great deal of community functions including keeping the town carnival going, supporting the British Legion with children taking part in local events and organising the children to visit, sing and dance to the 3 local elderly people's homes. Barbara is well know locally for her love of the Royals and will go to London whenever possible to get a glimpse of them. Barbara has another big time wish and that is to be a volunteer helper for the London 2012 Olympics. She is a real traditionalist and likes to keep traditions going and pass these onto the next generation. Barbara is remarkable and the children and community would agree.
