Tammy Barrow has been with the Newton-Conover City School District for 21 years and at Newton-Conover Middle School specifically for a year and a half. She teaches an Exceptional Children’s self-contained classroom, where she helps her students meet their academic and social needs. She also helps out in multiple ways that go beyond her day-to-day job, including facilitating Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) training, serving as the EC department lead for the Middle School, and serving on their PBIS team.
Her personal teaching motto for her students is: ‘Dear Students–I am here to Listen! You are Important to me! I Believe in you! I will hold you to High Expectations! You are Capable! You will Succeed! I am here to help you Grow! With Love, Ms. Barrow.’
School administration believe that Ms. Barrow lives out that motto daily, as a day never goes by without her telling her students she loves them.
Newton-Conover City Schools is blessed to have her, as there is no doubt about the positive impact she has on her students.
