Hello, I'm Barbara Saenger, "Second Grade Teacher" at Urbana Elementary.

In 1980 I earned my B.A. Degree in Education from Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania.  In 1987 I earned my Masters degree in "Communication Studies" from West Virginia University.    This is my 36th year of teaching.  

My first 8 years of teaching were in Parkersburg, West Virginia.  I taught 5th/4th/and 6th grade Music Classes, 5th grade Language Arts,  1st/2nd split classroom,  and 6th grade.  When I moved here to Frederick in 1988, I originally taught  1st grade and
"The Renzulli Enrichment Program" at South Frederick Elementary (now renamed Lincoln Elementary).  I have been here at Urbana Elementary since 1992.  I have taught the 2nd grade magnet program, 3rd grade, 5th grade, and 1st grade here at Urbana.  I currentlly teach 2nd grade.

I believe that every child has a gift to offer.  It is my joy to help unearth those gifts!  I feel that I am truly blessed to wake up every day excited to go to "work."  My classroom is a place that fosters learning for everyone . . . even me.

I always welcome communication.  I'm very good at returning voice messages and e-mails.  Drop me a line!
