I received my bachelors degree in elementary education from Eastern Kentucky University, masters degree in elementary education from Union College, and rank 1 degree in leadership from Eastern Kentucky University. I am a National Board Certified teacher in Reading/English/Language Arts.
All About My Family and Me:
I am married to Bobbie Patton (since 2008). My dog, Daphne, is also an important family member. I have an older brother and twin sister. I adore my 5 nieces and 4 nephews. I love spending time with my family. My favorite sports team (besides our Greyhounds) is the University of Kentucky Wildcats!!!
I absolutely LOVE kids and teaching! I am determined for all students to succeed and reach their fullest potential. 5th grade is a tough year, but I will help prepare fifth graders for middle school. 5th grade will be an amazing and outstanding year!
