Mrs. Bartel is excited to be teaching another year at St. Rita. Her 7th and 8th math students are in for an exciting year of expressions and equations and making geometric connections with algebra concepts as they prepare to transition to high school mathematics. The students will incorporate technology in the classroom with graphing calculators, IXL and MyMathLab and make meaningful memories with their quarterly math projects. A tough course is ahead, but the rewards of preparation will be great.
After receiving her B.A. in Mathematics at Loyola University New Orleans, Mrs. Bartel began her career teaching in New Orleans at Mount Carmel Academy. After conquering the Crescent City, she moved to the Big D and taught at Highland Park High School. While there she earned her M.A.T in Mathematics Education from UTD, married her true love, and started a family. After staying home for several years, she returned to teaching at Schreiber Methodist Preschool and then found a home at St. Rita. Mrs. Bartel has been transforming students into mathematicians for over 15 years and looks forward to many more.
Mrs. Bartel has two children, Kate and Nicholas, who are students at St. Rita. Her family enjoys being part of the neighborhood and the St. Rita Catholic Community. She can often be found walking the neighborhood with her husband, Nick, and sweet Labrador, Baudelaire. Some of her hobbies include gaming, crafting, and mathing. Above all she enjoys relaxing with her family.
