Raymorris Barnes, Principal


I am starting my 14th year in education with this being my 2nd year as the principal of Spring Forest.  I came to Spring Branch ISD in 2011 after six years of teaching and coaching in Pearland ISD at Pearland Junior High East and Glenda Dawson High School.  After serving as a grade level principal at Northbrook High School for 4 and ½ years I transitioned to a district level administrator position at our administration building for the next year and a half.  I am originally from Biloxi, Mississippi and I attended Rice University on an athletic scholarship where I lettered in football for 4 years.  I graduated from Rice with a bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s in the Arts of Teaching.  My wife and I have four children with our two youngest entering the 5th and 6th grade this school year.  And yes, my 6th grader will be a Bobcat this year.  I am not only the principal, but I am also a parent.  I am proud to serve the students, staff, and community of Spring Forest Middle School and I look forward to meeting you personally throughout the school year.

Go Bobcats!
