Hello, I'm Barbara Amerson. This is my fifth year at Fairview Elementary School, and my eleventh year teaching. I am married to Vernon Amerson. We have four wonderful children, and a beautiful granddaughter. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education K-6 from Saint Leo University where I also received my Reading and ESOL Endorsement. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and shopping. As we begin our journey this year I would like to take this moment to welcome you and your child into my class. My goal as a teacher will be to challenge and encourage all my students to do his or her best and to strive to become the best they can. I believe education is a partnership between home and school. I value parent involvement at every level and encourage you to partner with me. In order for this partnership to be effective, we need to be able to communicate. So please feel free to call or write a note if you have any concerns or questions. I am always available to discuss any issues or concerns you may have. I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your child’s educational process, and I look forward to working with you and your child this year.
