Mrs. Barofsky is a native of Madison, AL. She began school in Madison when West Madison Elementary was the only Elementary School in town! She attended Liberty Middle School from 5-7 grades and was part of the very first 8th grade class at Discovery. She graduated from Bob Jones High School in 2001 and went to Auburn University. After graduating from Auburn, she moved back to Madison and began teaching in Huntsville City Schools.
