Biographical Information

"Once I entered the classroom, I knew I had found what I wanted to be, and from that moment on, I began teaching anywhere I was allowed," said Bonnie Farrar, who taught middle level science, math and TV journalism at Williamsburg High School in Williamsburg. Mrs. Farrar was introduced to teaching by her mother, herself a schoolteacher, who would frequently invite her to assist in the classroom. At sixteen she taught her own class of Sunday School first graders, and she formally entered the teaching profession as a second grade teacher in 1962. For Mrs. Farrar, it was a professional and a personal responsibility to help all her students "unlock their potential so that they may benefit themselves and society."
