Mr. Patrick Littrell

Hello,

My name is Patrick Littrell! I am an 8th-Grade Social Studies teacher at Fountain Middle School. I enjoy everything history, as-well-as, hunting, fishing, and anything Ohio State Buckeyes related. I have been teaching for nine years, seven here 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 seven 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 way of life; I truly value the opportunity to educate ALL students, especially the kids whose parents wore the uniform! 

Please use this page (my teacher page) as a "One-Stop-Shop" for all things related to 8th grade social studies. I always try to have multiple weeks planned out for which you can see in the schedule section below, plus, I provide all hyperlinks needed for both students and parents that need to check grades and open our work platforms, such as, OneNote, Clever, Email, Schoology and Project websites). If you ever have questions, please do not hesitate to ask! 

Respectfully,

Patrick J. Littrell
