Tina Guinot-Barnes

Executive Secretary

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share a little bit about myself with you. My name is Tina Guinot-Barnes, and I proudly serve as the School Executive Secretary. It is an honor to be a part of Lakeside Middle School.

Outside of my professional responsibilities, I have a deep passion for travel. Exploring new destinations and immersing myself in different cultures brings me immense joy. I find it fascinating to discover the unique sights, sounds, and flavors that each place has to offer. Alongside my incredible husband, Darrell Barnes, I am fortunate to have had the chance to create countless cherished memories while traveling.

On a personal note, I am a proud mother of two exceptional children. Alexander, my son, is making his mark in the vibrant city of Washington DC with his remarkable work. Meanwhile, my daughter Gabriella resides in the enchanting city of Edinburgh, Scotland, where she has built a successful career. Their accomplishments fill me with immense pride.

I am truly grateful to be a part of this school community, and I look forward to contributing to the continued success and growth of Lakeside Middle School.
