Mr. Barry Penning


For the past eleven years I have had the pleasure of teaching a variety of grade levels.  To date I have taught 2nd,3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade.  I am excited to be back teaching 4th grade as I find this age group to be extremely fun and inquisitive.  I am eager to work with my students as we explore new topics and strengthen our skills in old ones.  I am a firm believer that if you work hard and stick with it, you will find success (stick-to-it-tiv-ness).  I look forward to a great year and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
