    Mrs. LaBarbera is a really great teacher, she is always so positive and she helps out a lot if you need it. She’s one of the best teacher’s in the school, I don’t have many favorite teacher’s but she’s one of mine.

    She is a great teacher but once you get know her she is like a positive role model.Math she is really good at and she says NEVER GIVE UP because you shouldn’t.
