Barbara Dickman
Closter Upper School, Teacher - Class 5

I have been working as an assistant teacher at Palisades since 2002. I spent my first few years in the toddler classroom and then moved into the Pre-K classroom. I also worked for nine years at Palisades summer camp as a Head Counselor for the toddler groups.

I have been happily married for 32 years with four beautiful daughters, all of which have made me extremely proud. I love spending time with my grandchildren and my beautiful family. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, baking, painting, swimming, walking, and yoga.

It has truly been a pleasure working at Palisades. The joy and happiness I get from the children and their parents each day is immeasurable. I always say it is the best job in the world and the most rewarding. Palisades is a wonderful, safe place for children to learn, explore, laugh, love, and grow.
