Mrs. Barnes Class

Welcome! I am so glad you found your way to my little space. 

My goal is to inspire and motivate my students to be the best versions of themselves they can be. I want them to love learning and be inspired to become life-long learners. I believe with the right resources, mindset, and strategies, ALL students can achieve at high levels and learn to love learning.

 I am excited to be a part of their learning this year on their educational journey.

On a more personal note, I am a teacher, mother, and avid reader. I have been blessed to be the mother of two handsome boys and one girl. One of my boys is graduating this year and will be joining the Navy in June. They have made me a better mom, teacher, and person. I am so thankful to call these wonderful people my family.

My career path has led me down several roads before making this final turn in becoming a teacher.  I went to college at Texarkana College to become an LVN nurse and graduated in 2003.  Since then I have been in nursing and still continue to keep up my license as a nurse.  In 2007, I became a school nurse, and while I was there for several years, my yearning to become a teacher led me back in to college at UT Tyler, graduating with my bachelors in 2015.  

Thank you for visiting my site!
