Ms. Bartlett decides to retire after 29 years of hard work

After 29 years of working in the Ferguson-Florissant School District, our main office secretary, Ms. Bartlett, will be retiring this year. It all started at a young age when Bartlett first became interested in working in education.

“I always thought that it would be fun to work in a school district,” she said. She attended Stephens College to get her associates degree in arts, and she later attended the University of Kentucky to major in elementary education.

Bartlett began working at North in 1994. Before coming here, she worked at McCluer South Berkeley High School, Robinwood Elementary and Duchesne Elementary, which are all schools that are located in the Ferguson-Florissant School District.

Throughout her 19 years here at North, Bartlett admits that she has experienced many unforgettable moments. One of her favorite memories turns out to be working with the North Star pommies.

“I’m going to miss them,” she said.

Over the course of her hardworking years, she has built a solid rapport with many of the staff members here. She says she has built strong relationships with the secretaries and will miss working side-by-side with Ms. Gianopoulos.
