Teacher Profile: Ms. Barba

CHENBarbateacherprofile2Susan Barba grew up in San Francisco having a passion for the Spanish and French languages. She attended San Francisco State University, where she studied Spanish, and then went to Institut Pour Étranars in Aix en Provence, France to study French.

“I like the Spanish and French languages because I grew up Peruvian and French just  sounds pretty,” said Ms. Barba.

During her free time she enjoys quilting, walking her dog Stanley, and loves going to beaches while listening to David Bowie, Bobby Mcferrin and Mozart. Ms. Barba loves eating spicy food especially her favorites such as uni and agi sushis with wasabi and Peruvian ceviches with herbs and spices. She also spends a lot of time driving around her daughter Mia.

Ms. Barba has taught for 25 years, twelve of which were here at San Mateo High, but being a teacher is much harder than it may seem. “The hardest thing to do as a teacher is to enforce rules.” Despite having to create worksheets, Powerpoints, and the dreaded benchmarks, she looks forward to teaching for many more years.

“I love the kids here and I love the San Mateo Community,” said Ms. Barba with a smile.
