Mrs. Barbara McBride
My name is Barbara McBride and I am thrilled to be a Northside Mustang! I truly believe that God has led me to this amazing school. I am excited for all we will accomplish together this year!
I have been teaching since I was 15 years old when I began giving piano lessons in our family living room! I received a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano and Voice from Stetson University and have taught music in both private and public schools for over 20 years. I sang with the Voices of Liberty at E.P.C.O.T. Center for two years and have continued to perform as a member of the Tampa Bay Master Chorale and as an accompanist.
NCS 6th grade teacher, James McBride, and I have been married for 30 years and are the proud parents of three adult children, Michael, Ben and Megan. Michael is the NCS elementary technology teacher, Ben is an insurance underwriter and Megan, NCS Class of 2016, is a RN at All Children's Hospital. Our newest joy is being Nana and Papa to our grandchildren, Canaan and Aubrey!
I look forward to making music with the students at NCS this year!
