Mrs. Karen Bartl, Gifted 8th Grade World History Teacher


Hello, my name is Karen Bartl.  I have been with the Baldwin County Board of Education for 27 years; this is my third year at Fairhope Middle.
I grew up in Baldwin County, attending Lillian School, Elberta Consolidated School, and Foley High School.  After high school, I married my husband, Tim, a farmer in Baldwin County.  We have two grown children, and three grandchildren.  I enjoy reading, gardening, and swimming.
I attended Troy State University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Social Science and a minor in Psychology.  I earned my Masters degree in Secondary Education from the University of South Alabama, and returned to complete my Masters degree in Gifted and Talented Education.
I enjoy teaching at the Middle School level and wish to instill in my students a love for learning which will enable them to become successful, productive members of our society.
