Welcome to my home page. My name is Lisa Barnes, and I am proud to be a part of the amazing third grade team! Here at Waller, I have taught both 7th and 8th grade language arts and reading intervention. In the past, I always desired to teach third graders; I believe this magical time in their academics is pivotal to their future success! I am currently completing my M.A. at University of Colorado Denver in Reading and Writing for Elementary. I am married to the love of my life, and we have three amazing children! Personally, I enjoy reading and watching movies, yet more importantly spending time with my family and friends.
