Barbara

Barbara Willis

Barbara Willis graduated from Eastern New Mexico University with a BS in K-12 Math Education, specializing in remediation education and methods to help people who struggle with math. Rather than earning a Master’s degree, she chose to take multiple classes and workshops to learn new ways to help students who struggle with basic math and algebra concepts, as well as other learning disabilities from Texas Tech, Eastern, Emporia State Teachers College, Lubbock Christian College, and various Community colleges in the Panhandle.

After teaching in public schools for 32 years, she retired from full time teaching. Barbara has been an adjunct math professor at Midland College, College of the Mainland, and Galveston College. Her area of expertise is in basic math and algebra, helping students who need a bit of “review” or patient encouragement. Her life goal has always been to be a supportive, positive teacher helping people as they succeed.
