Hi! My name is Mrs. Bartyzal and I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year. This is my tenth year teaching 1st Grade at Montgomery Elementary. I have also taught 1st and 5th grade in other districts. I have degrees in Elementary Education, Kindergarten Education and Early Childhood Education from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN.
Teaching first grade is the best! My goal is to help students use their imaginations, creativity and problem solving skills every day. We do lots of fun STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) challenges. In addition, I want to help students get hooked on books and find the joy that reading and writing can bring.
I grew up in the country outside of New Market and live on that same land now with my husband Craig and four children: Ellie, Frank, Russell and Emmett. We love the outdoors and enjoy fishing, ice fishing and snow shoeing.
