Mrs. Lynn Barnhill
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Mrs. Lynn Barnhill and I am delighted to be teaching 4th grade at Ben D. Quinn for the ! It is hard to believe that this will be my twenty-sixt year in education. I have enjoyed multiple teaching roles over the course of my career including teaching fourth and fifth grades with a heavy focus on math and also serving as district Math Facilitator for eight years in my previous school district.
I moved to New Bern in 2016 with my husband and two children. My husband, David, is a highway contractor and is currently working on the Greenville Bypass. Hannah, our daughter, is a recent graduate of East Carolina University and our son, Samuel, is an 11th grader at New Bern High School. We have a dog named Tucker who is always making us laugh at the crazy things he does. Our family loves to spend time outdoors. While I personally prefer the beach no matter what the weather, my husband and kids are mountain people.
In my free time I enjoy reading, gardening, and of course, going to the beach. As a child I spent many days and nights on Hatteras Island fishing, building sand castles, swimming, and collecting shells with my family. I believe the ocean will always call my name!
As I look ahead to the coming year I am delighted to be teaching 4th grade once again. I can't wait to dig into NC History and read the awesome new books we were able to order for Book Clubs. In math, we will explore fractions, algebra, and geometry using brand new tools that make learning meaningful and fun. We also have several great field trips planned across the state to bring everything we have learned to life.
I look forward to an amazing year with my students and their families!
