Mrs. Katherine Barnes

Hello and welcome to our classroom!   

My name is Katherine Barnes and I currently teach 3rd and 4th grade students in Family 2 at Webster Elementary!  This is my 5th year at Webster, but my 27th year of teaching.  I taught for 5 years in the western part of Michigan and have been in Livonia since 1996. Every year is a new beginning to initiate new ideas and refine existing skills!  I strive to be a better educator and learn from the important people that populate my class.   

I currently live in South Lyon with my husband and our 3 children.  Our kids are very busy with school, soccer, gymanstics and all the other things that fill their days.  We had a wonderful time this summer roadtripping out east to Boston, New York, Nantucket and Niagara Falls.  

I welcome you and your child to our room!  I am excited to explore new ideas and watch each of them take risks and accomplish goals.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me so that we can find solutions!  Your children are your most precious gifts, and I promise that I will do everything to take care of them and encourage them to be the best they can be!  

I look forward to working with your children!  It is going to be a great year!
