Mr. Bartley Bess

My name is Bartley Bess.  This is my 16th year teaching.  I have taught 1st grade and currently teach 5th grade.  I enjoy teaching because I like to make a difference in peoples' lives.  I am married to Krystle, an ELL teacher for Lincoln County.  We have one daughter, Noelle, and a son, Judah.  I am also a licensed foster parent for Lincoln County.  Appalachian State University awarded me a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I am an ordained minister.  My family and I are active members at Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church.  I have been on several mission trips to Brazil, Peru, West Virginia, and Vermont.  When I am not teaching, you could find me watching movies, cooking, spending time with family, or reading.  I am easygoing and comical.
