Ms. Katie Barnes, Reading Intervention

Hello!  My name is Katie Barnes and I am one of the reading intervention teachers at Oakview Elementary.

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 16 years as a classroom teacher in 3rd and 4th grades and several additional years serving as a literacy specialist.  I am thrilled to focus on my passion, literacy instruction.  I enjoy supporting students as they strive to establish a growth mindset, reach goals, and develop as life-long readers.

When I am not teaching, I love to spend my time with my husband, Stu, and our three daughters, Sloane (15), Ashley (13), and Ellis (11). I also enjoy being with friends, exercising, reading, watching movies, going to the beach, and shopping online.
