Teacher- Fifth Grade
Hello! My name is Arika Barnes. I am currently the 5th grade Language Arts teacher at Pine Springs. This is my 8th year teaching elementary school. I attended to East Carolina University for undergraduate school. I obtained my Elementary K-6 licensure and reading license. I attended Drexel University for my Masters degree. I obtained my Leadership and Administration degree with a principal certification. I currently live in Willow Springs, NC with my husband, 2.5 year old son, and two dogs. We have another baby boy on the way due in April 2022. I love to read, spend time with family and go to the beach. I look forward to meeting and seeing new faces around PSPA!
