Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Pam Barbour and this is my thirteenth year teaching in Norwell. I have had wonderful experiences with supportive and encouraging Vinal families in the past, and look forward to each new school year.
I originally received my bachelors degree in Marketing from the University of Rhode Island. Not soon after, I decided to go to Bridgewater State College to pursue a teaching degree. During my first year of teaching I was certified as an Orton Gillingham instructor. In 2009, I earned my Masters degree in Teaching and Curriculum through Fitchburg State College.
I love teaching first grade! Students are filled with enthusiasm and constant curiosity. It is amazing to watch the enormous amount of academic and social growth that students experience throughout first grade.
