Welcome to our Classroom Website
    Hello, My name is Mrs. Barnes. I am looking forward to being one of your child's teachers during the 2019 -20 school year. I began teaching in 1982 in S. Sioux City, NE. During my many years as an educator I have taught a variety of grade levels in Nebraska, North Dakota and Minnesota. I began teaching at Monroe in 1986, primarily in grades four and five. I am currently a Supplemental Reading and Math teacher. As well as my bachelor's degree, I earned a master's degree in elementary education from St. Mary's College. My husband and I live in Bloomington. We have two sons who are married and four energetic granddaughters. We enjoy spending time with our family. Fishing, swimming and many other fun outdoor activities keep us healthy and active. 
    Thank you for supporting your child's education! I am excited to work with him/her and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
