Shelton teacher is tapped for statewide role

A third-grade teacher at Sunnyside Elementary School in Shelton, Michelle Bartlett, has been appointed to the “dream team” of teachers from around the state offering input on implementing the new Common Core education standards in Connecticut.

School Supt. Freeman Burr called her selection “well deserved.” Board of Education Chairman Mark Holden visited Bartlett’s classroom, saying it was “a joy” to see how her young students interacted with their teacher.
