Ms. Bartz

Hello my name is Brittany Bartz, and I am a third grade teacher at McCall Elementary. Just a quick glance at who I am…I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I attended Baylor University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. Sic’em Bears! Right out of college, I joined the McCall family, teaching fourth grade for four years. I made the switch to 3rd grade two years ago, and I’d have to say it’s my favorite grade to teach! I’m thrilled for this school year and the opportunity to teach your precious child!

Mr.Fossier

I graduated from Texas Tech University and am currently enrolled at DBU working towards my Masters. This is my third year at McCall and I have loved every minute of it. Go Colts!
