Spring Branch ISD

Raymorris Barnes

I am the proud principal of Spring Forest Middle School, home to 900 students and home to some of the best teachers in all of Texas.  I believe in all of our Core Values as that is what truly makes Spring Branch ISD a great place to work, live, and grow.  As a husband and father, I also appreciate the importance and value of family, and we try to incorporate a family style atmosphere throughout the Spring Forest community.  I am originally from Biloxi, Mississippi, and I came to Houston by way of an athletic scholarship to Rice University.  After playing 4 years of football within a 5 year span, I graduated from Rice with a Bachelor's Degree in English and a Master's Degree in the Arts of Teaching.  After teaching 6 years in Pearland ISD at Pearland Junior High East and at Glenda Dawson High School, I joined Spring Branch ISD as an assistant principal at Northbrook High School.  I traded in my red pen and whistle for instructional leadership and discipline management.  In my 7 years of service in SBISD, I have served in a number of different leadership positions on the campus and district level.  I now am starting my 2nd year as the principal of Spring Forest Middle and I know that this year will be better than the last year.  It won't take much for that to happen. As long as we don't have another Hurricane Harvey then we will be ahead of schedule!  But seriously, thank you for visiting my page to learn a little about me.  I hope I have the pleasure to meet you in person as there are many other things you can learn about Spring Forest and myself if you ever stop by.

Take care!
