Barb Hewitt graduated from Mercyhurst University with a BA in Secondary Education – Mathematics and went on to earn her Masters in Educational Strategies from Wilkes University. Barb has raised three children and is grandmother to ten. She believes that family support is very important.
She has taught grades 6 – 12 at various schools in Erie for the past twelve years and is beginning her fifth year with Sarah Reed Children’s Center as a math teacher for the Bayfront Alternative Education Program. She finds it challenging but rewarding work.
Barb joined the Bayfront Summer Credit Recovery Program staff this past summer and enjoyed working one-on-one with students who are motivated to achieve. A high percentage of kids are lacking credits in math and that is what keeps them from graduating. She loves to see kids graduate and succeed because it inspires her to want to do more for our students. We are so pleased to have her as a part of the team!
