Mrs. Barb Forstner

field of early childhood education spans 3 decades, including positions working with young children in

to make each child’s first school experience a positive time of playful learning. “I enjoy observing and
assisting each child as they move through the stages of development. Nothing is more rewarding than
the smile on a child’s face when he or she says, ‘Mrs. Barb, I did it!’”
