Barbara teaches first grade at Stowers Elementary School, Fort Benning, Georgia. She holds a Specialist Degree in Elementary Education. She believes her greatest contribution to education is to help children develop a joy in learning, and to encourage children to see the positive in themselves so they are free to develop and pursue their own interests and dreams. Barbara uses brain compatible teaching and learning strategies and avoids the "cookie-cutter" approach by varying assignments to address individual student needs and learning styles. Children learn how to think metacognitively through the rubrics she has them make for self-assessment. A quote from Barbara's letter of nomination reads, "Mrs. Barbara Culwell consistently goes about the business of quietly transforming lives. Her daily purpose is truly one of service."
