Barb Freeman, Supervisor, Learning Resources Center, received her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and Psychology from UCSB and subsequently completed additional coursework to learn more about Finance and Accounting. She earned her certification as a CPA through her work at a Big Four accounting firm, and then served clients as a consultant on special projects until she was hired by Gap Inc. to work as an Analyst.  The company’s commitment to serve the community allowed her to volunteer with local schools in the Bay Area and encouraged her to return to UCLA for her Master’s in Education.  She then taught at urban schools throughout South Los Angeles, where she attained National Board Certification and became involved in projects that encouraged hands-on learning to engage students.

After teaching for several years in LAUSD, Barb joined the UCLA Lab School as a Demonstration Teacher, where she collaborated with colleagues to create innovative learning experiences in elementary education.  She also participated in research projects, presented to local teachers, and taught undergraduates about strategies for introducing scientific concepts across the curriculum.  When Barb relocated back to Santa Barbara, she joined SBCC as a Writing Tutor and discovered the extensive range of services available to assist students.  As the CLRC Supervisor, she coordinates activities designed to promote student success.
