Hello! I am Mrs. Lisa Barnes, the Art teacher at both Ford and Gray Court-Owings Elementarys. I also teach the academic gifted and talented class (Encore) at Ford Elementary, when needed. This is my ninth year at Ford, my second year at GC-O, but my 29th year teaching. I have always enjoyed teaching in Laurens 55, no matter what school I have been at, and even though I teach almost 800 students each week. I enjoy the wide variery of ages and seeing how student learning progresses from one year to the next. Over the years I have also taught at Sanders Middle, Sanders Elementary, Pleasant View, Hickory Tavern and Laurens Jr. High.
