Ms. Jennifer Barns

Welcome to the library! I'm so excited to be the Library Media Specialist at Chavez Elementary.

I began teaching in a 4th grade self-contained classroom in 1997. Over the years, I've also taught 4th and 5th grade Science, 8th grade Earth Science and Physical Science, High School Algebra 2, and have also worked as a Library Assistant in the Denton school district.

I have three awesome kids: Andrew, Kevin, and Carrie. Andrew lives in Tennessee, and Kevin and Carrie both live at home and attend the University of North Texas. Our house is also home to a cat, two parrots, a bearded dragon (our library pet!), an assortment of fish, and chickens. I love to read and learn new things, and I look forward to the many fun and exciting activities we will be doing in the library this year!
