Meet Your Teacher

My name is Kimberly Bartnick.
I am married to Roy Bartnick - 5th grade teacher 
at Chisholm Elementary.  
Together we have six children: 
Robbie (28), Megan (25), Ashleigh - (23),  Kayleigh - (21), 
Carleigh - (16), and Cody - (13).
   I am very excited and blessed to be living and 
raising a family in this community.

I have been teaching for the past twenty-five years.  I graduated from UCO in 
1992 and  for the first twelve years, I taught at Wiley Post Elementary in 
Putnam City.  During those twelve years, I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades 
as well as piloting a LOOP program with my students.  As the 
students 'graduated' from 1st grade, I moved with them to 2nd and then to 
3rd.  I  spent the next five years teaching 3rd grade in Cashion.

I carry a dual certification in Elementary Education and also in Early 
Childhood Education.  

I was chosen Teacher of the Year my last year with the Putnam City School 
District, which was  a huge honor.  I love 
teaching in this great school and have been so impressed with the 
faculty, parents, community, and my fellow teachers.  It is an honor to 
teach with such great educators and an honor to have your child 
in my class.

 My mission for my class would be for each student to continue to strive 
for excellence in all that they do.  I hope to prepare them for the 'real 
world' by sharing stories, quotes, and life principles that will help guide 
them in their decision making.  I hope to instill in every child a love of 
learning and a desire to persevere. 
I am a Great Expectations teacher and instructor.  I have high expectations
 for each and every student.  I challenge them to excellence in 
everything they do.  You could use the words friendly, organized, motivated, 
and a desire to learn to describe me.  
I hope to impart these qualities to my students.  I expect the same qualities 
from each student.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
