Hello! My name is Mrs. Barnes, and I am thrilled to have your student in Barnes' Brilliant Bunch this year! This will be my eighth year teaching, and my sixth year teaching here at Pinnacle Classical Academy.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Gardner-Webb University in December, 2012. I spent my first three years teaching fourth grade here at Pinnacle Classical Academy where my heart continued to grow more passionate toward classical education. After relocating to Georgia in 2016 for my husband to complete his Juris Doctor at the University of Georgia, I continued teaching fourth grade at Rocky Branch Elementary School, where I received my Gifted Certification. I also spent those years in Athens coaching for the Athens Bulldog Swim Club at the University of Georgia, where I had the pleasure of meeting several 2016 Olympic swimmers! We moved back here to Shelby, NC in May, 2018 so that I could return to teaching here at Pinnacle Classical Academy. My husband, Delton, is an attorney here in Cleveland County, and we live in our cute little home with our four sweet pets: Kaiser, Bailey,Tulip & Oliver. We are expecting our first child in September, so we have been busily planning for her sweet arrival! Our class will have an Interim teacher during my Maternity Leave for a few short weeks. More details on that to come!

I am deeply passionate about inspiring young people in being creative, thinking outside the box and taking pride in who they are. I am thrilled with this opportunity to have your child in my class this year, and I look forward to meeting your family as we start this year together.

We have a fun and memorable school year ahead of us in BARNES’ BRILLIANT BUNCH!

See you soon!
