    Mr. Barnett has been one of the best additions to Beaverdale Elementary School. For anyone that has a child with a disability this school should be #1 on your priority list. All of the teachers are amazing especially Mrs. Nancy Wilhoite the autism teacher. My son had her and she along with everyone that works with her; creates an amazing atmosphere for these special children. I want to thank everyone there for the excellent job that they have done in making a lasting impression on how wonderful they are with all of the students in their care.
