Barnes, Maria

Hello! My name is Maria Barnes

ClassroomI am excited to have your child in my second grade class!!!! I have been a teacher for 18 years, and have been at Douglass Elementary for 8 years.  I truly believe that EVERY child can and will learn.  I get excited every time students who I had previously, come back and let me know what is going on with them.  I especially like it when they tell me they enjoyed being in my classroom.  Teaching is a hard profession but also the most rewarding!  I hope to keep doing this for a long time to come.

Should you need to talk to me, my conference period is 9:00 - 9:45 AM.  You can contact me at 236-8750 or email me at mdbarnes@episd.org.
