Welcome! My name is Daniel Barnes, and I am the principal at B.O. Barnes Elementary School.
I have served as a teacher, AVID coordinator, and assistant principal at Beddingfield High School, principal at Vinson-Bynum Elementary School, and now principal at B.O. Barnes Elementary School since July 2018.
As principal at Vinson-Bynum, the school performance grade rose from 46 to 66 in two years, and the school was removed from the state's low-performing list after the 2016-17 school year. After the 2017-18 school year, I was tapped to lead B.O. Barnes Elementary School so that we can improve our student outcomes that our children and community deserve.
I am passionate about ensuring that students have an environment in which learning is the number 1 priority; therefore, our focus is on high-quality instruction and providing for a safe, nurturing school.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at 252-399-7875 or email at
