"I am committed to offering learning environments where our kids feel safe, capable, and confident in trusting their academic skills. We encourage Barnes student(s) to have a growth mindset~ take risks, do their best at problem solving and self managing.
"There are so many great memories I have had in my 4 years here at Barnes it is difficult to pick just one, but the thing that sticks out to me are the memories I hold onto each school-year related to the growth we are able to observe from each of our students from one year to the next."
"My favorite part about being a Barnes Bear is Bear Cave. I love seeing students build relationships with peers and teachers across different grade levels."
"I have so many fond memories at Barnes. My most favorite memory is going to the Mt. St. Helen's Visitor Center and Seaquest State Park for our field day. Not only did we go once, we got to go twice. They were very long days for me, but worth every minute watching our BEARS have so much fun!"
One of my favorite memories at Barnes is when our Resource Room students prepared, cooked and served full thanksgiving meals together. We loved celebrating each other and sharing the joy!
My favorite memory of Barnes thus far is decorating the hallways, classrooms, and every inch of the school in different colors for the epic color war K-2 had with 3-5. It was amazing. The kids loved it, the staff loved it, and it was fun to compete and make the school look like it threw up colors.
