Degrees and Certifications:
Hello everyone! My name is Lisa Barnes and I teach second grade at Pleasant Grove Elementary School. I believe a part of me has always known that I was going to be a teacher. I am grateful to have, what I believe to be, the best job in the world.
I am a Durham, North Carolina native. I graduated from North Carolina Central University (Go Eagles!) with a BS degree in Elementary Education and Master’s in Curriculum and Instructions. I also achieved National Board Certification in 2012. I have taught grades kindergarten, first, second and fourth in Wayne and Durham Counties.
My husband Jim and I have 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, volunteering in the triangle area, shopping and watching HGTV!
I am excited to get to know each of the students and families more as we begin the school year together!
