Portrait of Mrs. Patrick

Teaching over 25 years in both Connecticut and Illinois, my classroom teaching experience includes kindergarten, first, third and fourth grades as well as working as a Reading Specialist assistant and a Reading Specialist. 

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Rhode Island College, a Master of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Southern Connecticut State University and a Certificate of Advanced Study in Reading from National Louis University. Serving for over ten years, I recently retired as a Board Member from the Suburban Council of the International Reading Association (SCIRA). 

I believe students succeed in a positive and welcoming environment. My goal is to foster independent learning where students can share ideas and take learning risks as they build self confidence as readers.
