Hello! I am Barbara Digby. I am the SIP (Scholars in Progress) teacher for the 5th grade at Ireland Elementary. I taught one year as a long-term substitute. Next, I taught 6th grade at Noel Elementary for 5 years. This is my eighth year at Ireland as the Scholars in Progress teacher. It has been a wonderful experience, and I look forward to the upcoming year of teaching our wonderful scholars.

I have been married to Larry for 31 years, and he is my perfect match. We have a "yours, mine and ours" family. It consists of 2 daughters, 5 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. We have been truly blessed with this wonderful combination of families. Our family would not be complete without mentioning our animal "children". We have 3 dogs named Mickey, Hailey and Minnie. We are definitely one "big, happy family".
My Philosophy of Teaching:
I believe every child has the heart to learn. My hope is to instill, within the hearts of all students, an eagerness to become life-long learners.My measure of success, as a teacher, will be knowing that each and every student has felt valued as a voice within my classroom.SIP 5th grade supplies for 2018-2019SIP students:1 - 100 page composition book
