Meet the Teacher
Welcome to Mrs. Patrick's Beach- where learning is oceans of fun!
Welcome to Room 20! This will be my first year teaching first grade at Hahntown Elementary. I am so excited to be a member of the Hahntown family! Prior to coming to Hahntown, I taught 2 years of first grade at Stewartsville Elementary. Before becoming a first grade teacher, I was the reading specialist at Sunset Valley Elementary and Stewartsville Elementary for 11 1/2 years. I am a graduate of California University of Pennsylvania, where I received my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Athletic Training. I also have my master's degree from CAL in Elementary Education. During this time, I also received my certification as a Reading Specialist.
My husband, Chad and I live in the Norwin Community with our 2 children, Tyler and Avery, and an English Bulldog named Bella. When I am not at school, you may see me on the soccer fields watching Tyler play. I am also a Girl scout leader for Avery. I enjoy watching her dance and sing, too. I enjoy the beach, camping and hiking, and reading. Those who know me, know that I love my coffee!
I can't wait to find out about your child's interests. It is so exciting to see how much a first grader grows emotionally, socially, and academically during this year of schooling! I look forward to meeting your child and the year ahead!
