Mrs. Patricia Patchin
Welcome to Ms. Patchin's 4th Grade Class
My name is Patricia Patchin, and I have been teaching for a long time. Most of my teaching experience is in 4th grade. I love the community at Innovation and am excited to work with students in my classroom to grow a love of learning. I like to use hands-on activities to help students comprehend lessons and love to get my hands dirty in The Grove and garden.
Defining Moment in Education
I knew growing up that I wanted to help others in my community, but it was through many visits to my sister's classroom that I recognized that this would occur through teaching. I loved seeing the wonder in their eyes as they learned something new, and the joy on their faces when they were able to overcome obstacles. It was not until after a few years of teaching that my love for science grew. At Innovation, I am able to combine my love for teaching and science all day!
