I'm Ms. Barnes! I grew up in Washington, D.C. with my mom and grandparents. I always loved school, and hated to miss a day. Reading was my favorite subject, because I was able to explore my imagination. I have 7 brothers and sisters, and 1 daughter (in the 4th grade). I attended Howard University, Clark Atlanta University (BA), College of Notre Dame MD (MA), and Loyola College for school leadership (in progress). This is my 6th year teaching in Baltimore City, and my 1st year teaching 3rd grade. I have been a special educator in a small group, and inclusion setting. This school year really excites me, and I hope you are excited too!
One secret about me is that I love politics.
