Mrs. Barnes

Welcome Coyote families! I am excited and honored to be your child’s 1st grade teacher. My name is Kayla Barnes and I am from Bismarck, North Dakota. My husband and I moved to Arizona last summer and have loved having Arizona as our home. I have been teaching for four years. I taught 2nd grade for two years, 3rd grade for one year, and 1st grade for one year. I am excited to be back in First Grade and am honored to be a part of such a wonderful team at Diamond Canyon. I look forward to getting to know your child and building a positive relationship. Our year will be filled with lots of learning and lots of fun!
