Mrs. Barbie Obert

First Grade Rocks!  My name is Barbie Obert and I have the joy of teaching fabulous First Grade. I look forward to the opportunity to help students grow in their reading as well as so many other academic and social skills.  We are so excited to introduce Secret Stories: Cracking the Reading Code with the Brain in Mind in combination with the Logic of English program in Kindgergarten and First Grade. We are going to have some Reading Rockstars at Hobson School!  So we are one movin' and groovin' classroom with all the phonics, spelling, reading, handwriting, writing, math, social studies, and science we do every week!  Even though we are hard at work, we still manage to have fun while learning (especially Friday Funday's) with hands-on activities, our favorite Brain Breaks, Music class, Art and of course Recess! First Grade also loves guest readers during read aloud time!   We have a great little place here in Hobson filled with wonderful students, parents, teachers, and community members.  Go Hobson and Tri-City Titans!


Fun Fact:  I was born and raised in Texas!  I have lived in Montana for 18 years and I am a mom and grandma.  My husband Monte Joe Obert and I have 4 children with two still living at home: Riley (junior) and Chance (5th grade), Franny in Missoula, and Nicole(Tim) and Eva (2) reside in Hamilton.
