Mr. Joseph Bartko
Hello all! My name is Joe Bartko, 4th grade teacher at Mountainside Elementary. 2018-2019 will be my 2nd year as an educator, and I couldn't be more happy to start my career with such an amazing school! It is truly a privilege to educate the children of those who serve.
To give you a little background about myself, I was born in Denver, Colorado. During my teenage years, my family moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming, where I spent the majority of my childhood. After high school, I studied at the University of Wyoming, where I received a B.A. in Elementary Education.
When I am not teaching, I am usually outside enjoying all the beauty that Colorado has to offer. I am a huge disc golfer, and play as much as I can. I also play traditional golf, softball, and volleyball. I am also a huge Denver Broncos fan. I love going to Mile High to cheer on the Broncos!
In all, I am overjoyed to be a Mountainside Cougar. Let's have another great year at Mountainside!
