Hello and welcome to fifth grade GT! My name is Katie Patterson. I graduated from California State University of Fullerton with a Bachelor's degree in Child and Adolescent Development and have also earned a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My first year teaching was in a first grade classroom and this past year I taught drama at Pathways Middle School.
I have an amazing daughter named Aubrey, who is eight years old, and the light of my life! We love spending time together whether it be floating the river, camping, hiking, visiting museums, or just playing with our dog Minnie.
In my classroom, I believe the act of learning is a life long journey. My role as an educator is to provide my students with challenging opportunities to open their minds and hearts to learning new things, along with deepening their understanding of what they already know.
Anything that I see in my mind, I can create. I just have to focus.
