Welcome, fellow PLPers!
My name is Barb Younkin and I work with the Berea City School District as Curriculum Coordinator. I taught for 24 years in grades 4-10 in Tennessee, Indiana, and Ohio. I was a Math Specialist for 7 years and am in my 2nd year as Coordinator. As a lifelong learner, I am excited that the 21st century is changing the way we think about the education of children.

I live in Berea, Ohio, which is a suburb of Cleveland. I am an outdoor person and enjoy traveling, biking, hiking, and our national and state park systems. We have family all over the country and enjoy our trips to visit and explore the areas where they live. I also enjoy theater (Cleveland has wonderful opportunities at Playhouse Square!), music, and the Cleveland Indians.

You may not know that at one time I was a blueprint drafts"woman" for a steel joist company. When it snows, I hope the roofs of K-Marts and school gymnasiums can handle the weight!

Working together, I know this experience will enrich and expand my understanding of the power of technology in education. It will be a fun ride!
