Mr. Barbosa

My name is Rodnie Barbosa. I am an ESOL Teacher at Pinehurst. I have been teaching for about 16 years now. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. My native language is Spanish, but I went to a bilingual school were I learned both languages at the same time. I come from a family of educators, so I guess I am continuing a family tradition. 
In my teaching career, I started as a middle school teacher. I taught middle school for seven years. Then, I got a job at an elementary school and thought it was wonderful to see little kids grow into wonderful individuals. I have never looked back. I love teaching at Pinehurst Elementary School. It is my home away from home.
