Hello! I’m Cindy Columbo and I’m a Reading Specialist at Barrett Elementary School. In the 2015-2016 school year I made the switch to APS after teaching elementary school in Fairfax County for several years. When I started teaching in Arlington County, I worked as a first-grade teacher at Discovery ES, while completing my Reading Specialist endorsement from GMU.
Since joining the Barrett ES community in 2016, I have enjoyed co-teaching and providing interventions (Reading Recovery, LLI, and OG) for various groups of students in the lower and upper elementary grades.
This year I’m very excited to be providing literacy support to the third grade and fifth grade teams. When I’m not teaching, I love to read, bake, travel, and spend time with my family and friends. I especially enjoy taking weekend excursions with my husband and two young boys to explore and picnic at various parks in the DMV.
