Ms. Norma Barnes
Hello students and parents! My name is Norma Barnes and I am an Autism Spectrum Disorder teacher and I also teach Intensive Reading and REWARDS. I am a fifth year teacher and this is my fourth year at West Port High School. I was born and raised in Florida and graduated from "that other high school across town." I earned my AA degree from Santa Fe College and my Bachelor's from the University of Central Florida. When I am not at work, you can usually find me at the Orlando theme parks. I am so honored to have been selected as one of the five 2018 Marion County Teacher of the Year Golden Apple recipients!
I absolutely love my job and feel very blessed to be working with such wonderful staff, students and parents. Thank you for taking the time to visit my class website and please don't ever hesitate to contact me at: Norma.Barnes@marion.k12.fl.us. I look forward to working with you and your student in what I am sure will be an exciting year! GO WOLF PACK!
