Mrs. Ingle Baran - 6th Grade ELA/ALPS

         Welcome Parents/Guardians to JNFMS and to our Classroom!  I am thrilled that I get the honor of being your child's Homeroom/ELA/ALPS teacher here at JN Fries STEM Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year. We have an amazing year ahead of us!
         A little bit of background on me...I grew up in Chapel Hill, NC with my parents and 2 younger brothers. In 1994, I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in English.  After graduation, I moved to Charlotte and went on to teach 4th and 5th grades in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System for the next 6 years.  In the summer of 2000, I married my husband and started in the Masters of School Administration program at UNC-Charlotte. I graduated in 2002 and went on to be an Assistant Principal of Instruction at Irvin Elementary for two and a half years.  In 2003, my son was born and I was lucky to be able to stay at home with him for a year.  In early 2005, we moved to the Concord area and I began working at R. Brown McAllister Elementary, first as a 4th grade teacher and then as the API for the next year and a half.  In 2006, my daughter was born and I stayed at home with her until she started Kindergarten at Coltrane-Webb where I also had the honor of teaching for 7 years.  This is my 4th year of teaching at JN Fries and my 20th year of being in education altogether.
          I am not only a teacher here in Cabarrus County, but I am also a parent. My son is a senior at Concord High School and my daughter will be starting 9th grade in the STEM Program at Central Cabarrus High School. There is no better place than Cabarrus County Schools and being a Noble Knight at JN Fries Magnet School!  I am very much looking forward to the upcoming school year of working with you and your child!
