Teacher Highlight

Lori Barbag was born and raised in Hollywood, Florida.  She entered the University of Florida as a Mathematics Major and a Minor in Secondary Education.  As a student athlete at UF, playing Water Polo, she truly enjoyed her undergraduate experience.  She loved the camaraderie of her peers and the challenge of the academics.  So, she decided to stick around for a graduate degree.  She completed her Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Mathematics.  After UF, Lori moved to Philadelphia where she taught in the inner city public schools.  After a couple of years, she moved to Washington DC and taught in one of Newsweek’s top 100 Public Schools.  She taught for a couple of more years before moving back “home” to settle down and start a family.  Lori has worked at North Broward Preparatory School ever since her return to the state of Florida in 2008.  She happily lives with her husband and three sons, ages 4, 2, and 6 months.  At NB, Lori is the Mathematics Department Chair for both Middle and High School.  She continues to love sports and has a blast encouraging our exciting teams! Lori loves teaching.  It’s not just the subject content, but the life lessons that she loves to teach her students.  Each year, she has her students write a letter to them.  After five years, Lori mails those personal letters back to the students.  They are able to see how much they have grown, and she is able to maintain correspondence with her previous students.  It’s the personal connection that truly makes teaching a wonderful career for her. 

Connection drives Lori Barbag's love of teaching
