Ms. Lisa Barber

My senior year in high school, I took Honors Chemistry with Ms. Barber. Many didn't like her, and she already knew that. As a matter of fact, the first day of school, I remember her saying that she didn't care if students talked badly about her because the only reason she was hard on us was because she cared, and I really respected her for that. Junior year, when we scheduled for classes, a lot of the kids that I knew who had her before told me that I wouldn't want her and I should schedule to have Mrs. Greible. I already knew Mrs. G and I knew she was an easy chemistry teacher. I actually had her until I changed my schedule and ended up with Ms. Barber.
Ms. Barber always had a smile on her face, no matter what. She was always happy and cheery, but on task and organized at the same time. She wasn't the kind of teacher to let things go, whatever she has planned, always happens. However, I really didn't like her teaching method at all. I remember always being confused in her class. But what I loved the most about her was that she was really helpful and understanding. Ms. Barber would stay after school everyday if you needed help, and her explanations made a lot more sense when she taught outside of the classroom. Every time I stayed after school to get help, we'd always learn something new about one another, and by the end of the year, we've become really close. Although, many say they didn't like her, I believe that they just needed to get to know her, because she's a great person.
