Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Carol Barnes

I was born and raised in Fort Collins.  After high school graduation, I went on to get my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from Concordia University in Saint Paul Minnesota. While in Minnesota I got a second degree in Education and two minors in Theatre and Lutheran Confessionalism, because when snow falls daily from October to May there's lots of time for classes and studies. Besides I LOVE TO LEARN!
I have been a middle school math teacher since 2008 in Colorado and have loved making math achievable for all students. I also have waited tables, driven a school bus, worked at a child care center, and even spent some time in retail. While I'm not working you can find me enjoying the outdoors with my family. We especially love to ski in the winter and swim in the summer!
February 2016 I got married on a horse drawn sleigh ride in Keystone Valley. I met my husband (also a Colorado Native) August 2015 and it was love at first site. We spent our first day as husband and wife skiing down the mountain in our wedding clothes. The family joined us - flower girl included - and we all skied in our dress clothes.  My husband and I live in Severance now and enjoy the small town, love biking on the trails, and enjoy getting outside as much as possible. When you see him - be sure to give Mr. B a high five!
