Mr. Jeremy Bartley

 

Mr. Bartley has been working with Alleghany County Public Schools students for twelve years.  He enjoys directing after school fitness activities and running clubs.

Some of Mr. Bartley's favorite things include beautiful views, sea salt and ocean breeze, calm brooks and campfires, and clean crisp sheets (especially when he needs a good rest after a workout). 

Another favorite thing--during his childhood--book was Hatchet by Gary Paulsen; Mr. Bartley read it 20 times!  He figures he could have survived in the Canadian wilderness after reading that. His current favorite book is Cold Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace. 

When it comes to health and fitness, Mr. Bartley puts his money where his mouth is. When he was just 17, he flew 23 hours by himself to Sydney, Australia to meet up with a group of American runners to run in the City to Surf. He finished 214th out of over 43,000 runners and it took him 3 minutes to get to the start line after the gun went off.  Wow!
