Teachers and Staff

We value the opportunity to impact all Katherine Mecham Barney Elementary School students. We know the hours we spend with your children each day play a vital role in their social and emotional development. Our gifted teachers and staff strive to make every encounter positive as well as educational. Please use this page as a resource to keep the lines of communication open. You may call our main line at (480) 474-6725 any time during office hours. We look forward to connecting with you!
