Mrs. Samantha Barnes

Welcome Friends! 


My name is Samantha Barnes and I am one of the Exceptional Children's teacher at Meadow. This will be my 9th year teaching in EC. I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Go Steelers!) and attended Slippery Rock University for my bachelors degree. I moved to North Carolina and began my teaching career at Meadow and it has been a great adventure!


I look forward to this upcoming school year and the new adventures we will create together!
