Mrs. Barsh

Mrs. Barsh

My name is Mrs. Barsh and I am so excited to be your child’s First Grade Teacher this year! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventure! I can’t wait to see what is in store for us.

Since I am new to the Holmdel District let me tell you a little bit about myself. I began my teaching career as a student aide after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Teaching. For the past 6 years, I have taught in various grade levels including Middle School, 2nd grade and Kindergarten. This year I will be taking over for Mrs. Monether and she will return in February.

Throughout the school year we will get to read many wonderful books and write all different kinds of stories. In Math, we will be learning number facts, telling time, graphing, geometric shapes, fractions and much more! During Science, we will have the opportunity to do some hands-on experiments. For Social Studies, we will learn about where we live, maps, community helpers, famous heroes, and about various holidays! Throughout the year we will do special seasonal activities and invite parent volunteers to join us as well!

Feel free to contact me with any questions
