I'm Mrs. Barnes, and I am excited about this upcoming school year here at Ann Smith Elementary. I have taught 2nd grade at ASE for six years, and it has been a blast!!! As a mother of three children, I understand the importance of building a strong relationship with the parents and guardians of the students I'm blessed to teach; therefore, I'm eager to work with my new students and their families. Together, we will work to help each student reach academic and social success. Let's get ready to have a fantastic year!!!
