Ms. Mary Barba
Mary Barba came to Sheridan Technical College in 2013 and has successfully led Sheridan Technical High School since 2015. A lifelong learner, Ms. Barba has a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Business Administration, a Master's Degree in Education Administration/ Leadership, and a Master's Degree in Education Law. She is certified through Florida Department of Education in: Educational Leadership (All Levels), Earth-Space Science (6-12), General Science (5-9), Elementary Education (K-6), ESOL, Reading, Gifted, Business Education (6-12), & Marketing (6-12).
A product of the Broward County School system (Sheridan Park Elem, Driftwood Middle, Cooper City HS), Ms. Barba knows the value of an excellent education and strives to ensure every student at STHS has the same opportunity she had while attending school. She attended the University of Florida right out of high school, with a full ride scholarship for softball and is a proud member of the Gator Nation!
Through the years, Ms. Barba has managed after school programs, coached championship Robotics and SECME teams, and taught at each academic level, including a decade of teaching online. There is nothing more meaningful to her than to see every student work to the best of their ability, achieve success, and forge a path that is right for them.
She would also like students to take heed to one important life lesson: Learn for the Sake of Education, Not for the Reward!! If you only learn what you need to know today or in the short term, you are not setting yourself up for the future and the goals you may wish to attain down the road. Think Big Picture & Long-Term!!
