Mr. Patrick James Littrell

Hello,

My name is Patrick Littrell, or Mr. Littrell.  I am a 6th grade social studies teacher at Fountain Middle School and an assistant wrestling coach. I enjoy everything history, as well as, hunting, fishing, and sports.  I have been teaching for the past eight years, and beginning my 6th year at Fountain Fort Carson School District 8. I, like many of our student’s parents, served in the United States Army. I had the honor of serving my country for 7 years as a Combat Engineer, (12 Bravo). I have the deepest admiration for the men and women who selflessly serve and protect our nation and our way of life; I truly value the opportunity to educate students of our nation’s heroes'! 

Respectfully,

Patrick J. Littrell
