Birdie Barbare is the new gym coach for Greer High School. Barbare has attended Greer since her 6th grade through senior year.

After graduating from USC Upstate and earning her Physical Education degree and her coaching certificate, Barbare returned to a familiar place. This 2017-2018 school year will be Barbare’s first year teaching.

When asked why she started teaching, Barbare replied with “God laid it on my heart, and I just really love it.”

Barbare wants to create a family like environment for her students. She also wants to help them set goals and be able to meet them. While getting to know Barbare, we learned that her fav TV shows are, “Friday night lights,” “One Tree Hill,” and “Reba”. Also when asked, “If she could go back to any decade, which one would it be?” she hesitated before asking Coach Perry what he thought. Then she replied with, “Just put the 80’s, because of the clothes and dances.”

Welcome back to Greer High School Ms. Barbare!
