Congratulations to Mrs. Bullard for being selected as Bartow Elementary Academy’s Teacher of the Year!  She started teaching Kindergarten at BEA in August of 2004 and we have had the pleasure of keeping her here ever since!  She is quite an amazing teacher! Mrs. Bullard incorporates many different teaching strategies to meet the needs of all the learners in her class.  We are so excited to have her represent us as Teacher of the Year!

Congratulations to Ms. Bottoms for being selected as Bartow Elementary Academy’s Support Person of the Year!  Ms. B, as she is known by many of the students, started here in 2017.  She has been with Polk County Public Schools for many, many years.  You can find Ms. B just about anywhere on campus.  She greets our bus students in the morning, helps in the cafeteria during lunch, and helps during dismissal being sure the students get on the right bus.  It is an honor to have Ms. Bottoms represent BEA as our Support Person of the Year!
