Mrs. La Rosa Barnes


I am extremely excited to introduce myself as a member of the Alexander Elementary 3rd grade family. I am super eager to work, learn, and teach your superstar. I know that with cooperation and hard work together we can make this year a great learning year. Third grade is an exciting grade and there are many things to do, explore and learn so make sure we are ready to do the work, explore new concepts, and learn as much as we can. 


A Little About Me

I am a native New Yorker with an eclectic background, an Army Veteran, a graduate student, wife of a disable veteran and a proud mother of 3. I love education and encourage my students, parents, and members of the community to engage and explore the wonderful world of learning. I will always give 100% to education and I will work hard to ensure that your child experiences an exciting learning experience in third grade.
