Ms. Norma Barnes
Hello students and parents! My name is Norma Barnes and welcome to my class page! A little about me:
I am a sixth year teacher (with five of those years being right here at WPHS!) For the past four years I have been teaching Intensive Reading and REWARDS in the Autism and ESE Unit and this year, I will be teaching English I and Intensive Reading to 9th graders.
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.
During the 2017-2018 school year, I was the school based teacher of the year for West Port High School and then was 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!
