My name Barbara Almendinger-Harper and I am one of the 8th grade Language Arts teachers. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science. I earned my Master’s Degree of Science in Education. I have taught at Utica Junior High for twenty-seven years. I have two sons, David and Jeremy. I also have two step-sons, Kendall and KJ. I get to bring Scout, our school therapy dog to school with me every day. Scout loves to hang out with the students and enjoys being walked by them each day.
I love teaching language arts and introducing
students to reading a wide variety of books. I am very blessed to come to work
today and spend each day with the great kids who attend Utica Schools.
Please feel free to email me or call
the school if you have any questions or concerns. Balmendinger@northfork.k12.oh.us or 740-892-2691.
