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 7th 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!

Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

JCPS Announcements

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.
