I am delighted to be teaching again this year in my hometown. I graduated in 1998 from Gatesville High School and will be celebrating my 38th bday this September '17 :@!

This is my 6th year to teach jr. high level students. I have taught grade levels 6th-8th and have coached at the 7th and 8th grade levels as well.  I graduated from Tarleton State University with a degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in History. I have a graduate certificate in Conflict Resolution (mediation) from ACU and I am currently finishing my last year at Abilene Christian University for my Master's in Conflict Resolution (Mediation). I am married to the wonderful Ryan Bartlett (Bartlett Electric) and we have two AMAZING daughters, Riann Tippit- 8th grade and Belle Bartlett -4th grade.

I am an over the top ANIMAL LOVER! One day I hope to rescue a monkey! There are sooo many animals in shelters waiting for a loving home! Spread the word... Adopt don't shop!

I am super excited to start another year at GISD and help enrich the lives of your precious kids! I am also thrilled to work with you as parents and encourage communication between each of us.

Bring it on 2017-2018! -I'm ready! :)
