Jami Barnes


My name is Jami Barnes.  My family and I have lived in Clayton for the past 17 years.  I have 3 children, 2 dogs and a horse named Captain!  My son Evan left ECU after 2 years to pursue his dream of serving our country as an US Infantrymen and is currently stationed at Fort Bragg.  My daughter Riley is a SENIOR ( oh my ) at CHS and has been riding hunter jumper for 10 years now.  My youngest daughter Emma will be a junior at CHS and plays on a travel soccer team.  

I have been teaching for 17 years,  11  of which have been in the Johnston County School System.  Six  years ago I left the county briefly to embark on a wonderful opportunity to become a Curriculum Coach as part of a grant for a low performing school in Wilson County.  Although it was a truly great experience from which I learned alot, I discovered that I missed the classroom!!  I returned to the classroom 3 years ago and could NOT be happier!!  Creating a classroom culture for learning and developing relationships with first graders is my true PASSION!  I am so thankful for the opportunity to teach at Riverwood Elementary School.
