Ms. Katie Barnes


I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach 4th grade at Oakview Elementary and look forward to another #owlsome year!

I am a North Carolina native - I was raised in New Bern, graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill, and then moved to Wake County to begin my teaching career. My experience as an educator includes 12 years as a classroom teacher in 3rd and 4th grades and several additional years serving as a literacy specialist. I enjoy supporting students as they explore their passions, strive to reach their goals, develop as life-long learners, and establish a growth mindset.

When I am not teaching, I love to spend my time with my husband, Stu, and our three daughters, Sloane (10), Ashley (8), and Ellis (6). I also enjoy being with friends, reading, watching movies, and exercising.
