KVUSA is pleased to announce that Fran Bartlett is the September Educator of the Month. Ms. Barlett is a social studies teacher at Lawrence High School in Lawrence, Kansas. Not only is she a well respected and much appreciated teacher but also has conducted the county’s Election Night Headquarters for tallying ballots and submission of the final results. Fran gathers up, organizes and trains all the students to work: bringing in the ballot boxes, sorting the materials, tallying the votes for all the various races and issues, keeping updated results flowing on boards for viewing, and completing a final summary of the results. She keeps Kids Voting in the minds of her own students as well as those of other teachers in the building and assists with encouraging them to work polling places on Election Night.
