Welcome to my Homepage.
My name is Barbara Jarvis and I am a teacher at Lake Mary Elementary School, in Lake Mary, FL. Presently I teach the Fifth grade STAR program.
When I have the time I love to sit on my porch, watch the birds and squirrels, or read a good novel. Some of my favorite authors are Mary Higgins Clark, Sue Grafton, Barbara Taylor Bradford and Danielle Steele. On rainy days I enjoy cruising the Information Highway and putting together jigsaw puzzles.
My students enjoy creating and publishing their work on the computer. We've also had fun finding information on the Internet. We've just finished doing research on famous Americans. Each child wrote a report and is making a HyperStudio presentation to share with the class. Some other topics we'll cover this year are: ecology, fractions, and geometry. I am very interested in meeting teachers interested in these same topics.
It is very warm in central Florida. This time of year temperatures are generally in the 80's. It's a great time to be outside. The flowers and trees are blooming and the Love bugs aren't here yet.
Search engines are a great way to find useful infoirmation on the Web. One of my favorites is Education World.
