Hello My Name Is...

Barbara Cifaldi


Greetings!  I am the STEAM lab teacher. The STEAM lab  is a place for exploration, tinkering, wonderment, and learning by students and teachers. This is an opportunity for collaboration, integration , and going deeper with Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math (STEAM) standards. I work collaboratively with the classroom teacher to supplement what they are doing in science.  I have been teaching for 21 years.  I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts, a Masters in Arts and Teaching, am National Board Certified, and am currently working towards my Educational Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction. As you can see, I love to learn and hope I instill the love of learning in my students.

My husband, Paul, and I have been married for 27 years. We have two children, Olivia and Paul. Olivia is a teacher in Boston and Paul lives in Telluride, Colorado. We just adopted a new puppy, Eddie.  I love to travel, garden, go to the beach, and explore the woods, and take naps!
