Michael Bartolay

Dear parents/families,
Welcome to Carolina School for Inquiry, where learning begins with wonder. I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your child this school year. My name is Michael Bartolay and I am pleased and thrilled to join the faculty at Carolina School for Inquiry this year. I have been an educator for eleven years now and have previously taught in international school settings in Indonesia, Singapore and China. This year, I am taking on the challenge of teaching and becoming a positive energy in the classroom in another continent. I am certain that it will be a fruitful year for me and for your child.

I believe that every student deserves the best education possible and I will try my hardest to do my part in this stage of their learning. I desire to build positive routines with students. When routines are done consistently, they become habits. Once a habit has been formed and performed regularly, it transforms into a lifestyle. One of my ultimate goals is for students to develop and nurture a lifestyle of learning and excellent study habits which would be beneficial not just at present but even in the later part of their lives in any school. To get there, I genuinely seek your assistance in making sure that your child completes assigned tasks at home independently. Your assistance will greatly benefit your child's learning. I know that it will be a great year of learning and memorable experiences for all of us. To help us ease into the school year, open communication between parents, students and teachers will be a vital factor in the success of each learner. As such, if you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to visit our classroom, schedule a conference, or volunteer to help out, please contact me at 803-691-1250 or through email at mbartolay@carolinaschoolforinquiry.org. I will try my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

I am excited about meeting and working with you and your child this year. I am looking forward to a happy and productive school year!
