Mark Barbre - Gifted Specialist / Project Plus

Mr. Mark Barbre

Greetings!  I am the Project Plus / Gifted Specialist at Avery Elementary.  I have been working in the WGSD for 15 years.  I taught 2nd-5th grades for many years until I earned a degree in gifted education.  This is my sixth year as the gifted spcialist.  Avery is home to me.  My first day at Avery was in 1979 as a kindergarten student.  I went through the entire Webster Groves school system.  My junior year in high school was spent in The Netherlands as an exchange student, and I have gone back many times.  Webster Groves is home to me, even though I now live in Shrewsbury.  I enjoy learning about history, culture, and dabbling in science.  My dogs are my family, and one (Georgie) has visisted Avery a few times.  Every year is a new theme, and I get to learn about new topics each year with my students.
