"David ensures that all his students receive the tools to be successful"

David Barba, Intervention Specialist, Lakewood City Schools

The following testimonial was shared by Lakewood City Schools in selecting David Barba as a 2015 Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator. 

David Barba is very meticulous and effective at writing and facilitating IEP meetings. He is resourceful, ensuring that all of his students in the classroom and on his caseload are receiving the necessary accommodations and tools to be successful.

Administration at Lakewood High School consistently observes David using co-teaching models to drive the lesson. While observing his inclusion classroom, one cannot distinguish who is the lead teacher. He is respected by the staff, and parents often request him as their child's case manager.
