Contact Information

You can reach me by email, which is definitely the best way to reach me throughout the day because I have my email linked to my phone!

You may also call the school and leave a message for me and I will return the phone call as soon as I possibly can!

You may ask me for my personal cell phone if you feel like you will need to reach me after school hours or on the weekends, so please feel free to ask me for my cell phone number if you would like to have my personal number.

Weekly Lesson Plans




Welcome!  I am so excited that I will be working you as I teach your child this year in First Grade!  On my webpage, you will be able to find my contact information, Weekly Lesson Plans, classroom announcements, and resources to help you and your child at home! 

About Me

    Hi!  My name is Mrs. Barnard and I am going to be your First Grade teacher!  This will be my second year at Don Steed Elementary AND my second year teaching!!!  I am excited about learning and having fun with you!
  I have a Master’s in Teaching: Elementary Education from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and I have a Bachelor’s in Child Development and Psychology from Peace College!  I love teaching and working with children, it has been a passion of mine since I was a teenager.  I can’t wait to help you become a better reader, writer, and math wiz!!  I hope to expose you to lots of new material and adventures in First Grade.
  I am originally from Thomasville, North Carolina, which is known as the Furniture Capital of the World and I enjoy going home to visit my family who still lives there!  My husband and I just welcomed our baby girl, Esther in January!  We are so smitten with her and we think she is a pretty cute kid- you'll hear me talk about her A LOT!  We currently live in Fayetteville and we really enjoy traveling to the beach and all the different areas that North Carolina has to offer!
  We have a 5 year old Yellow Labrador, Harper.  She is such a sweet pup!  We have a 1 year old German Shorthaired Pointer, Winston- he's WILD!  He is definitely ahandful and has more energy than a room full of first graders!!  Our little family loves to go walking/hiking, we LOVE trying new restaurants and new foods, and we love cooking/baking together.
    I can’t wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you!!
