I am Jennifer Bartlett, and I teach 4th grade at Bennington Elementary School.  This is my 18th year in education and my 15th year at Bennington.  I spent ten years as the Library Media Specialist before moving back into the classroom.  I graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s degree and received my Master’s degree from Fort Hays.  My husband, Jeff, is a farmer and we have two children Kolbie and Jordan.  Most of our time is spent working as a family on our farm.  We also spend time with  sporting and 4-H events.
