Ms. Katie Barnes, Reading Intervention

Hello!  My name is Katie Barnes and I am so excited for my role as a reading intervention teacher at Oakview Elementary this 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 16 years as a classroom teacher in 3rd and 4th grades and several additional years serving as a literacy specialist.  I look forward to returning to a focus on my passion - literacy instruction - and 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 (14), Ashley (12), and Ellis (10). I also enjoy being with friends, exercising, reading, watching movies, and shopping online.
