Jay Bartos

My name is Jay Bartos, and I will be your son/daughter’s 7th Grade Science teacher this school year. Since I will be spending nearly an hour per day with your child this year, I would like to tell you a bit about myself.
I am married to a gift curriculum coordinator in the Canal Winchester School District (Danielle). Danielle is also a LuLaRoe Consultant and I have two children (Anna and Evan), two dogs (Callie and Charlie…both beagles).
I graduated from The University of Akron with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology (Pre-Professional). I also graduated from the University of Akron with a Masters of Science Degree in Secondary Education. I have been teaching in the Pickerington School District since 1999. During this time, I have taught 7th grade and 8th grade science.
In addition to teaching, I have coached football, golf, wrestling and baseball in the Pickerington Local school district and have coached baseball in Canal Winchester. This year I am coaching Junior High Golf and 8th grade baseball.
I look forward to working with you and your child and having a great 2020-21 school year.(No matter what it may look like)

Sincerely,
Jay Bartos
