5A Mr. Barr

Hello My Name Is...

David Barr

September 2020

I am so excited to be teaching your children this year and sharing my passion for life-long learning with them. This year more than ever, the power of kindness, resiliency, and flexibility will be paramount. I am confident that the students of EGW will excel in these areas and thrive in these unique circumstances. This year students will further develop their critical thinking, reasoning, and problem solving skills while exploring new content and curriculum. In 5A we strive for excellence in all that we do. We have growth mindsets and know that setbacks and challenges are just the first step towards mastery. We practice and reinforce self-regulation, and celebrate curiosity and an eagerness to learn through our daily activities.   

Please feel free to send me a message anytime @ dbarr@hpsd.ca to setup a meeting or to discuss any concerns.

Our class regularly reads on the Epic App (GetEpic.com). Epic is a website and application on the App Store and Google Play store with thousands of books for children to read or listen to.
