Brittany Ortner

Preschool Teacher • Certified Alabama Teacher

Hello! I’m a Nashville native, but have spent  most of my life in the Madison/Athens area.  I’ve been married to my husband Brian for 17  years. We have two children, Jackson and  Mae, who both attend ABS and we have loved  our time at the school!  

I attended the University of Alabama before  getting married, then later went back to  complete my education degree in 2023. I have  worked in preschool for 17 years in both  public and private school settings. I absolutely  love teaching young children during a time  when so much growth occurs! I strive to help  my students develop confidence while  building a love for learning, and I would love to meet you and work with your child.

Part of the ABS Family

The 2024-2025 Pre-K class at ABS is offered to  students who will turn four years old by  September 4, 2024. We offer a variety of  schedules to fit your family! 

Our youngest students at Athens Bible School  are an integral part of our student body.  Upper classmen learn them by name, all  faculty encourage them through the halls, and  Pre-K students take part in all school activities.  At ABS, we see the value of planting God’s  Word into the heart of each child and we take  hold of that opportunity through daily Chapel,  daily Bible class, regular school-wide singings,  and academic curriculum that points all things  toward God’s will for their lives. 

Mrs. Ortner, the faculty, Administration, and  student body want to welcome your child as  they join the ABS family!
