Mrs. Courtney Barnes

Hello! I will be your child's Math teacher for the Scott and Barnes team..aka the Wonderful Whiskers! This will be my second year here at the Hills, but I am not new to Cabarrus County. I grew up in Cabarrus County schools and am the product of our awesome system. I attended the "old" Odell Elementary School, Northwest Cabarrus Middle, and High. GO TROJANS! After high school, I attended UNC-Charlotte to pursue my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. So I am proud to be apart of NINER NATION!

I have had the opportunity to work in several positions and schools throughout the county and country during my tenure in education. This will be my 10th year teaching, with 9 of the 10 working with 5th graders! So you can definitely say that teaching 5th grade is my jam. This year your child will grow so much developmentally, emotionally, and academically as we bridge the gap together from elementary to middle school. It is my greatest hope that your student will look back on this 5th grade year as an important and happy memory and milestone in their childhood.

  • A little extra info about Mrs. Barnes...

    I love spending time with my friends and family! My two kids are my greatest joy! :) My second love...is watching or playing sports. You can find me cheering on the Carolina Panthers or Tarheels on the weekends. I enjoy a good book, a good workout, and time with family and friends. The beach or mountains are my happy place and I'm a firm believer that a glass of sweet tea or a Reese's cup can help fix any problem.
