janet bartlingCongratulations to English Teacher Janet Bartling who was recognized as the FCPS 2022 Region 5 Outstanding Secondary Teacher and one of the six finalists for the FCPS Outstanding Secondary Teacher at this year's FCPS Honors event, held at George Mason University Center for the Arts on June 8th.

"Mrs. Bartling has brought English class alive for my daughter this year,” wrote a parent. Janet Bartling’s passion for teaching began in an FCPS fourth grade classroom where Mr. Paul Tessier made her feel welcome with his energy and enthusiasm. Janet takes pride in creating a similar caring culture. She meets students where they are, provides tools for them to take academic risks, and gives credence to student voice. Janet uses literature as a vehicle for students to make connections and grow in understanding, empathy, and inspiration. Coming full circle, several of her students have pursued careers in education, directly mentioning how Janet believed in them, encouraged them, and taught them that it's okay to struggle to reach your goals.

Congratulations to the following Rocky Run Middle School staff members who were also recognized at this year's FCPS Honors Ceremony!
