Bartlett High School

Welcome to Mr. Gast's

Hello.  I am excited as we start the 2017-2018 school year here at Bartlett High School.  If you have me on your schedule you must be enrolled in Standard Biology, Biology B, Environmental Science, or Ecology.  While this is my first year teaching at Bartlett, I have been in public education for the past four years in Memphis.  Prior to teaching public school, I taught Air Force ROTC at the University of Memphis for three years while concluding my 24-year military career. 
This web site will be updated soon.  I know a lot of teachers say that, but I am waiting for the new Learning Management System (LMS) that the wonderful BCS district is investing in to come online.  In the near future, you can expect a link for students to engage with their lessons on line, parents to check status of their children's progress, and a way to communicate with me and each other about our classes.
I will be available Tuesdays and Thursdays before school from 6:40-7:00am for tutoring.  Please, sign up in my room so I know you will be coming and I can prepare for your specific questions or concerns.
