Welcome to Room 203 with Jamie Barbarich 

Autistic Support - K through  

Meet Mrs. B 

Hello!  My name is Jamie, or “MRs. B” and I am the autistic support teacher at Mt. Nittany Elementary School.  I grew up not far from here in Danville Pennsylvania with my parents and younger brother.  I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher and to help inspire children with unique needs to accomplish more than others think is possible.    I currently live in State College with my husband Brian and 2 sons, 6 year old Braylan and 2 year old Layton.

I received my BS in Special Education from The Pennsylvania State University with Honors from the Schreyer Honors College in Communication Disorders. I then obtained an MS in the Autism Specialist program at Penn State.  I began teaching at Woodside Elementary School In Glen Burnie Maryland in the MINC (multiple intensive needs class) and taught there for 7 years at which point my family returned to the State College area.  I have been enjoying teaching students with autism spectrum disorders in the State College Area School District for the past 3 entering the 4th years.

 I am looking forward to having a wonderful year full of success!  Please feel free to contact me at any time.
