Welcome to 1st Grade with Mrs. Patterson
Greetings! My name is Elizabeth Patterson, my students call me Mrs. Patterson.
I’ve been a teacher since 1991. Throughout my teaching career, I’ve taught 1st - 4th grade and served as a math and literacy resource teacher, providing small group intervention and advanced instruction for first and second graders. I have a masters degree in teaching and learning from Saint Mary's University of MN. I received a bachelor of science degree in elementary education from the University of Minnesota.
I believe a child’s first teacher is their parents or guardians. Therefore, I view my role as that of a secondary educator: helping to amplify the hearts and minds of my students by providing a warm and nurturing learning environment where all students can grow as learners.
My professional goals reflect my life goals: learn to grow, grow to learn and bequeath all that I have learned. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your child’s first grade teacher!
Please feel free to contact me via school number (612) 668-4000 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
