Ms. Mary Beth Barnes

    Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts!  My background includes 28 years of teaching in the state of Pennsylvania at several schools and grade levels in Philadelphia, Chester, and Glenolden.  I have a Bachelors of Science in Education from Bloomsburg University and a Masters of Education from Cabrini University.  I am currently working on an additional certification in English Language Learning.   I enjoy reading and sharing that love of reading with my students. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a student read for pleasure and entertainmentl!   

    I am dedicated to making this a busy, productive and terrific year for myself and my students! In addition to teaching Language Arts, I believe in teaching respect, responsibility, and the value in making good choices.  The success of my students is my primary goal. I feel this goal can be reached with the hard work and cooperation of all the students. Please know that I am here to help any student at any time he/she needs it.
