Mrs. Bridget Hatfield Bitely
Welcome to First Grade!!
Mrs. Bitely has been teaching in St. Bernard Parish (at Smith!) since 2013. She is currently the Teacher Leader for First Grade and is excited to be able to teach along side of, and mentor, the other teachers on her team.
Mrs. Bitely is originally from Washington, DC where she was raised and taught how to be a life long learner. She is excited to instill the same love of learning in her students. Mrs. Bitely loves to be able to help her students explore the world around them through Science and Social Studies, too. You can often find her classroom a buzz with students exploring, discovering, and actively figuring out their own world. Come and join them any time you want!
Here is to a great school year!
