About




Hey! Thanks for popping in. My name is Barb and I'm the face behind Grade ONEderful.   

I live on beautiful Vancouver Island in Canada. 

I have a Masters in Education and I taught Kindergarten, Grade 1 or Grade 2 for  26 years. I retired in 2017 and I'm now a part-time TOC (Teacher-on-Call).

I'm crazy about dogs, painting, cycling and running.  I have one adorable spaniel mix AND at least 10 pairs of running shoes.

I'm married and have two grown sons. They're both married, too, and now we have a grandson and granddaughter!

Happy teaching, friends!
