About Me


My name is Barbara Ledford, and I am an innovative mathematics teacher at String Theory High School in Philadelphia, PA. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What makes String Theory a truly unique school is that it is 1:1  meaning all students are given an iPads.  Their textbooks are collaborated by teachers through iTunes and they choose majors ranging from ballet to engineering.  No paper, no pencils, no textbooks.  I can still remember the motto on the first day of “Move towards the fear.”

During my time at String Theory, I have been able to really grow as an educator and not only share my passion with my students, but to my peers, and fellow educators.  I have been afforded the opportunity to create and develop projects that p2016-01-15-11-48-44ush my student’s thinking, all well developing a solid mathematics base.

In my spare time, I love traveling around the world and experiences new cultures– especially food!  Also, during the summer between conferences and workshops, I can be found reading on the beach.
