Mrs. Heather Barnes
Hello, my name is Heather Barnes and I teach Kindergarten here at Tussahaw Elementary. I am happily married and have two beautiful daughters, ages six and eleven. I love sports, especially softball and swimming. I knew I wanted to teach since I was seven years old. Thank you to my second grade teacher, Ms. Hill, for inspiring me to love school and dream of being a teacher! I want to instill confidence and motivation in every student, while preparing each student with 21st century skills that are needed for a successful future. Kindergarten is a vital year for students, for we as teachers are creating an educational foundation that is necessary for students to learn how to communicate, collborate, think critically, and be creative. I am excited to be a part of each student's journey to an exciting future!
