Mrs. Kimberly Barnes


Welcome to Illinois School! My name is Kimberly Barnes and I am excited to be your child's 6th and 8th grade English Language Arts teacher. This is my second year at Illinois School. 

I earned my BA in English from Northern Illinois University and my Masters in Education from the University of St. Francis.

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending my time with my family (I'm a wife, mother to one daughter, and dog owner), reading, listening to live music, and running. 

In the classroom, please know that I care about your child. I believe every student can learn and be successful. My classroom is a safe and positive space and I want your child to enjoy this experience. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at
