Mrs. Mimi Bartell
My name is Mimi Bartell. I am originally from Chicago, where I grew up and attended school. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern Illinois University and have enjoyed teaching ever since.
In 2001 I came to Waller as a kindergarten teacher and love the people and community I serve. I am committed to public education and believe it is the foundation of this country and the key and path to success. It is through education that we learn to appreciate and value our differences, strengthening and enhancing our own skills to cooperate and respect others. It is exciting to teach kindergarten because this is where it all begins, as children develop social, emotional, and academic skills they will use as the foundation for their education. It is very exciting to be part of that, and especially exciting this year as we open a brand new school. I look forward to a wonderful year with you and your children and can't wait to see their bright shining faces!
