Welcome to Mr. Barnes' Literature I.
I was born and raised in Anderson County. I am a 1991 graduate of ACHS. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Centre College in 1996. I have a Masters of Education in Administration from the University of Louisville.
I am currently beginning my 15th year as a language arts teacher, all at Anderson County.
I am the head baseball coach, and I am beginning my 18th year as a head coach; 15 at Anderson.
I am married to Stephanie, a 2nd grade teacher at Saffell Elementary, and I have two beautiful daughters: Anna Foley (11) and Charley Lynn Barnes (3).
I look forward to a wonderful 2012-2013 school year.
