Barnhouse, Staci (5th Grade)

Hello, my name is...

Staci Barnhouse

I am very excited to join the 5th grade team at Fairview this year!
I borrowed my teaching mantra from Ms. Frizzle of The Magic School Bus series:

“Take chances, make mistakes, get messy.”

I discovered my love for helping kids learn when I worked at a preschool while in high school.  This led me to become a teacher.  I attended college in Bolivar, Missouri, and will be finishing up a master’s degree soon.  I just moved to western North Carolina from Florida to be closer to family, experience the culture of the area, and enjoy the beautiful mountains.  My husband is also a teacher and will be teaching at AC Reynolds High School this fall.  We share a love for teaching, a joy of travel, and two cats.

I have been teaching for nine years and have taught kindergarten through fourth grade.  I love teaching social studies and am fascinated by maps, geography, and learning about different people and places.
