Barbara Brun-Ozuna moved from Switzerland to Fort Worth, Texas in 1979, and other than summers in the Swiss alps has not moved very far since! Barbara has taught history in the Fort Worth Independent School District for 24 years. She graduated with a BA in History and Spanish from Texas Christian University in 1990 and while teaching, attended the University of North Texas from where she graduated with a Masters of Arts in History in 1995.
Barbara has taught the AP world history class since its inception in 2001, first piloting the course for the District and then formally proposing its adoption by the school board. Barbara has also spent time on vertical articulation within the discipline, aligning the pre-AP world geography course to the AP world history course and writing its curriculum for the district. In addition to working on AP ancillary materials for world history with numerous publishers, Barbara has written a book about teaching students to write for the AP world history course entitled Writing through Time. She is currently the Dean of Instruction, working to maintain high academic standards for her school while continuing her involvement with AP World History by teaching one class. When not kept busy with the course, the school, and her extra-curricular interests, Barbara is the mom of two kids - Courtland and Sydney - and the wife of a band-director, musician husband.
