Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kathleen Barnes
I am delighted to be in my 16th year in Community Unit School District 308. I came to District 308 after earning my master’s degree in teaching from National Louis University, Chicago, and a bachelor’s degree in English from Illinois Wesleyan University, in Bloomington. I found my way into education quite by accident. When I helped a friend of mine learn information to attain a professional certification, I was hooked on the feeling of accomplishment from having helped her achieve her goal. I am passionate about teaching and learning and will do all that I can to help my students reach their learning goals. It is my belief that individuals can accomplish anything they set their minds and hearts to doing. We are all capable of being great learners, great friends, and great community members.
I look forward to a great year of learning.
