About Teacher



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Barbara Magtibay

I realized at a young age that teaching was going to be my career choice. I had been spending my summers working at the Tyler, MN swimming pool lifegaurding and teaching swimming lessons. So, when it was time to head to college, I attended Minnesota State University where I recieved my degree in Elementary Education. I then went on to teach for 6 years in Rush City, MN.

Paul and I were married and we bought our first home in Rochester, MN where we started our family. A job oppportunity for Paul landed us in Arizona. Fast forward to four kids later! Our oldest son Paul is 24, on a path to become a Physicians Assistant .  Joan our only daugter is 22 and will begin the Masters Program at ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism this fall. Peter is 19 and will begin his sophomore year at ASU. And Jack, our baby at 17, will start his senior year at CSHS. I love being a mom!

This will be my 15th year at Black Mountain. We feel so lucky to have had our kids recieve their education in the Cave Creek School District.

Our family stays very active. We all love the outdoors and traveling. Paul and I passed down our like? of running to our kids and we are big fans of the XC and track programs at CSHS.
