Mrs. Megan Barnes

I am a lifelong learner. Learning new things makes me happy and I am an educator because I get to share a piece of what makes me happy with others.  I love to see students finally “get it.”  My grandma once told me that when you stop learning, you stop living.  Rarely, a day goes by when I don’t learn something new from my students, peers, or the content I am planning to teach. I hope to “live” for a long time and spread the love of learning everywhere I go.
