Mr. Barnes


The most astounding fact to me is that the matter around and in us was forged from hydrogen at the center of distant stars; and now some of this matter, briefly assembled as us, is contemplating its origins.

I began teaching at Wood River High School in 1995 having come from a background in wildlife biology. Sharing the natural world with others is among my chief pleasures.
