Mr. Travis Barnes

         Hello, my name is Travis Barnes. I am currently teaching Physical Science and Human Anatomy & Physiology at Athens High School. This will be my 19th year as an educator. I grew up in McMinnville, TN, where I graduated from Warren County High School. I continued my education at Freed-Hardeman University while playing baseball. I graduated with my B.S. in 2001, and completed my Master's in 2003 while serving as the Assistant Softball Coach at FHU. I met my wife, Amy while at FHU and we were married in October of 2004. Amy is currently a P.E. / Weight Training teacher at Athens High School. We have two daughters, Charlie (14) and Cora (12) who are both students in Athens City Schools. I am currently the Volleyball Coach at AMS and Head Softball Coach for AHS. In my free time, I love spending time outdoors hunting and fishing. I love spending time with my family, usually at a sporting event, but we also like being out on the lake and around the swimming pool. My family and I are members of First Baptist Church - Athens. I am happy to be a part of Athens City Schools, and look forward to a great school year. Go Golden Eagles!
