Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Barnes

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!
