Larry Barnes

My name is Larry Barnes, and I’m the Math teacher for 5th grade at AMS Advanced Virtual Academy.  I was the 5th grade teacher at Math and Science Success Academy last year and I’m excited to be a part of this new adventure for our online learning school.


A little about me, I’m married and have been married to my wife Valerie (also a teacher) for 14 years.  I have two boys (4th grade and Pre-K).  I’m originally from New Mexico but have lived in Tucson for 6 years.  I have a Bachelors in Sociology and Religion, and a Masters of Divinity from Gateway Seminary in California.  I’m also currently working on a Masters of Education. 


I’m a huge Diamondbacks fan and love baseball.  I also enjoy reading, playing video games, and Marvel superhero movies.
