Mrs. Bartlett was a substitute teacher for the West Aurora School District for 9 years while her children were little. She then taught at St. Joseph Catholic School in Aurora for 5 years. Mrs. Bartlett joined ASCA in 2016 as a fifth grade teacher. In 2020 she joined the Jr. High team. After two years of teaching junior high math, she is excited to return to the 5th grade classroom! Mrs. Bartlett's teaching philosophy is that she has high expectations for her students but is also there to be their biggest supporter and will do all that she can to help them be successful. Her favorite reason for working at ASCA is the people. The faculty, staff, students and parents are the absolute best. Everyone is so supportive and united in the goal to make ASCA a welcoming and faith filled environment.
