Lara Barnett

Welcome to Fifth Grade at Pinckney Elementary! 

My name is Mrs. Lara Barnett. I am very excited to be teaching at Charles Pinckney Elementary in Mt. Pleasant, where I grew up. I look forward to providing students with a rigorous education and helping them grow socially and academically, so they can achieve their goals in life.
If your child is a member of my class or Mrs. Barger's class, please make sure I have your email, so that I can send you weekly updates for your child. It is very important for parents to check these weekly updates, so they can help support their children from home.

About me:
I graduated from Bishop England High School in 2003, Clemson University in 2007 with a BA in Elementary Education, and Charleston Southern in 2010 with a Masters in Administration. I also earned my certificate to teach Gifted and Talented at College of Charleston in 2016. 
I taught third grade for six years in Dorchester District Two.
I taught fourth grade for two years at Pinckney before looping up to teach fifth grade in 2015. 
I have a daughter and a son.
My favorite sport is football. My favorite teams are the Clemson Tigers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I love boating, hiking, shopping, getting my nails done, and having family fun time.
