Get to Know the Education Team

Bethanie Ackman

A lifelong lover of history, it was fate that found Bethanie at one of BHM’s Sip ‘n Stroll events this past spring. She quickly found her new home at the museum and jumped in with both feet to begin educating students coming through the museum’s robust education program. Bethanie holds a BS in history from Mercer University and has years of practical experience with children, which she applies daily in her new position as an educator. She has called Cartersville home for over two years, having relocated from Marietta in 2021. When not working Bethanie can usually be found nose deep in a book, working in her garden, or chasing after her husband John, and beloved Irish setter, Maggie.

Tori Cline

Tori Cline joined the Bartow History Museum staff in 2022 as an educator. She lives in Cartersville with her husband Jack and their one-year-old, Fowler Elizabeth. After graduating from Adairsville High School, Tori moved to Athens, GA where she pursued a Bachelor’s of Arts in Religion, also gaining a minor in history and graduating in 2017. Tori’s passion lies not just in learning about history but also in sharing that information with anyone who will listen. Moving back to Bartow County, getting married, and starting a family prompted Tori to get involved with the community’s local history.
