Fall 2023 Let’s Chat Hours + Contact me + About me


The fastest way to contact me is via email at ebarnes@bmcc.cuny.edu

When you email me, please let me know which class you are in. I am teaching 2 CRT 100 sections this semester, so it’s helpful if you can be more specific (CRT 100 online for example as my other section is in person).

Please note that I check my email daily except for weekends and holidays.

Fall 2023 Office Hours: Let’s chat

Tuesdays 12PM – 2PM in N482

(Main campus/ Chambers building, 4th floor) + via Zoom

& Wednesdays 9AM – 10AM via Zoom

and by appointment: email me if the above times don’t work for you.

To see me during my office hours, make an appointment or simply visit me. If you are in the Zoom waiting room for more than a minute, I am likely with another student–please wait “in line” if you can. If you come to my office, simply knock on the door. I hope to see you soon!

My name is Ewa Barnes. I am originally from Poland. I arrived in the US when I was 20 years old, in search of the American Dream. I started my education at Norwalk Community College, then transfered to SUNY Purchase. I also hold an MA in Literature and a MS in Education, both from CCNY, the City College of New York. I have been teaching for nearly 20 years: ESL to international students in private language schools in NYC, in public high schools in NYC, in CCNY, and, my most beloved one, teaching you at BMCC. Here, I teach Critical Thinking 100 and 100.5, as well as Literacy courses. In my free time, I love to read, write, and explore the world with my two spirited children, and with my partner. I look forward to getting to know you.
