Mrs. Barbara Annable Named Ireland Award Winner


Congratulations to Mrs. Barbara Annable, first-grade teacher, who was named the Patricia A. Ireland Faculty Award winner for 2019-2020. Mrs. Annable has been teaching at Independence since 2006.  

The Patricia A. Ireland Faculty award was established to honor Mrs. Patricia Ireland, retired Head of School, for her tireless devotion to students in her role as Assistant Headmaster. Known for listening to concerns carefully, evaluating them thoughtfully, and creating resolutions that put the students’ wellbeing foremost, Patti served as a role model for all faculty.

In addition to the dedication she demonstrates in working with students in her classroom, Mrs. Annable has been a leader on our outdoor classroom committee. She provides countless opportunities for her students to explore and learn in the natural areas of our campus.
