Mrs. Jessica Barnes

My name is Jessica Barnes, and I am a 6th grade Exceptional Children Teacher.  This year I will be teaching Resource Math along with Inclusion Math (with Ms. Murdock) and Inclusion ELA (with Mrs. Starlin).  I may have you for one or more of these classes.  This is my fifth year teaching, but my first year at Swansboro Middle School.  I am excited to be here!

I am originally from New Hampshire, and I moved here last summer with my husband who is in the U.S. Coast Guard.  In NH, I attended Keene State College where I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in education.  Previously, I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade, but 6th grade is my favorite!   

In my free time I enjoy going to the beach, kayaking, exploring my new home state of NC, and traveling to different countries.  This past summer, I traveled to Ireland.  Other countries I have been to are Iceland, Italy, and Canada.  The next country I want to travel to is Spain!

I am looking forward to getting to know you this school year!
