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

Student Highlight

Dana has been a part of our NBPS family since elementary school. She has enrolled in Art each year of her tenure at North Broward. Her work reflects the spirit of a creative thinker - an artist not afraid of a challenge or a new technique. Her well-rounded approach is demonstrated in her Process Portfolio, for which she produced over 150 pages of visual and written research, exemplified in her outstanding artworks. Dana is, however, always willing to go above and beyond the course requirements. In the classroom and beyond she helps fellow students relax in stressful times, she builds them up with encouraging words, and stands by her friends. She has a passion for her family and others. Dana has joined her instructors after school and on the weekends in National Art Honors Society activities, painting the streets for our Chalk for Charity event, and decorating a new entry for Henderson Behavioral Health, as well doing a make over for their children’s’ waiting room. She is dedicated to supporting the arts, her school and to making a better community.  Her numerous awards include recognition from the City of Coconut Creek, 2 years in Celebrating Art, a Congressional Art Competition local entrant, as well as several playbill covers, Freshman Holiday Card, Freshman T-shirt design, the North Broward Holiday Card and a Silver Knight Art Nomination. Congratulations on this achievement, Dana!  NBPS invites everyone to stop by the Learning Commons to view Dana’s Legacy artwork, entitled “Rare Catch”.
