Barbie Crosslin - 3rd grade


Hello!  My name is Barbara Crosslin, but I've always been called Barbie.  I am beginning my 12th year teaching.  I graduated in 2006 from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, PreK-4.  I also received my Master's Degree from UTC in Special Education.  The 2018-2019 school year will be my 7th year teaching at Lookout Valley Elementary.  Although I was born in Florida, Lookout Valley has been my home since I was a baby.  I attended LVES (then known as Valley View) as a student in the 70's.  


I am married to a fantastic guy named Grant.  He loves to visit my classroom during the school year and meet my students.  I have a daughter, Laurel, who is also a LVES alumni.  I love to read (I have read 16 books this summer), crochet, and drink Diet Dr Pepper.  Teaching isn't just a job for me.  Teaching is one of my passions.  I love working with children, and seeing them become independent thinkers and learners.
