Welcome to Third Grade and Room 210!  I am so excited for the coming school year!

This is my third year teaching at Pattie.  However, I have been a member of the Pattie family for over ten years.  I have a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Mary Washington.
 
Teaching is my second career.  I served as an Engineer officer in the U.S. Army for 11 years.  I left after my first son was born and followed my husband around the world until he retired from military service.  After becoming involved at Pattie and seeing the impact that the teachers had on the children, I knew my second calling was to be a teacher. 
 
I have three children.  My oldest son is in 9th grade at Forest Park, and my twins are in 6th grade at Graham Park.
 
I have taught in every grade level, but third grade is my favorite!  The children are at a wonderful stage in their individual and academic development.  I am thankful to be able to grow and learn with your child.  I know that we will have a wonderful learning experience this school year.
