Barb Drexler earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Special Education from the University of North Dakota. She earned Master’s Degree in Education from the University of MInnesota and then her Education Specialist Degree from the University of St. Thomas. Barb taught for many years in general education before taking time off to stay home with her 4 children and get them off to school! Since coming back to teaching she has spent the last 6 years working in the area of special education. (One of her children receives special education services, so she knows what it is like to be both a teacher and a parent of these very special students). Barb is excited to be working at FIT Academy because she shares the philosophy of teaching to the whole child and also seeing each child as a unique individual. In her free time, Barb and her husband are busy running to all the events (soccer, hockey, baseball, cross country, lacrosse) that their children are involved in.
