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!
