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.
