Bar­bara Rosen­berg

DI­REC­TOR

The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators -

Bar­bara Rosen­berg al­ways wanted to be an ed­u­ca­tor and to work with young peo­ple. Be­ing heav­ily im­mersed in gifted ed­u­ca­tion since the early 1980s and hav­ing two gifted sons of her own, she opened the doors of the Academy for Gifted Chil­dren — P.A.C.E. in 1993.

Ac­cord­ing to Rosen­berg, the most re­ward­ing part of her job is in­ter­act­ing with the stu­dents. “They are fun lov­ing, witty and demon­strate an in­tel­lec­tual cu­rios­ity that is any ed­u­ca­tor’s dream,” she says. “The energy level in the build­ing is very high, the ques­tion­ing by the stu­dents is in­ces­sant, and there are a lot of laughs.” Rosen­berg says that the skills for any­one work­ing at P.A.C.E., whether in the role of teacher or stu­dent, are the same: a love of learn­ing, high mo­ti­va­tion, an ex­cel­lent work ethic and a sense of hu­mour. Her role as di­rec­tor def­i­nitely keeps Rosen­berg on her toes. She is for­tu­nate to be sur­rounded by ex­cel­lent teach­ers and a strong ad­min­is­tra­tive staff: her vice-prin­ci­pal, Jan­ice Gruchy, who has trained un­der Rosen­berg for 17 years, and Alyssa and Liana, her ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tants. She and her staff are look­ing for­ward to another pas­sion­ate and ex­cit­ing year for all.
