Mrs. Cari Barnes

I have been a school counselor since 2011 and have been at Meridian Middle School since 2015. I love working with students individually, in groups, and in the classroom setting. I am here to support your student's social, behavioral, and academic needs. My first priority is your student, I will always advocate for your child!  

Outside of school, I have many interests, first and foremost my family. My husband and I are the proud parents of two teenagers and two rambunxious dogs, a German Shepherd and a Corgi. When I have free time, I love to read, cook, garden, and complete projects around the house. I am a BIG Pittsburgh Steelers fan and I love to watch football on the weekends. I may be slightly obsessed with Wonder Woman too...
