Dear parents or guardians,                        
    I would like to inform you that I will be your child’s resource teacher this year. I also want to give you the number and email at which I can be reached if you have any questions or concerns about your child. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and getting to know you and your child as the year progresses. 
Three years agoI moved back to South Carolina from Pennsylvania where I received a Masters of Education in Special Education. I taught in the State College Area School District as an emotional support teacher (6-12 grades) for two years.  I also have a BS in psychology from Wofford College and an Elementary Education teacher's certification from Furman University. I have my national board cerification as an exceptional needs specialist, as well. I am highly qualified in the areas of elementary education and special education. 
       As your child’s resource teacher, I am here to help guide your child and help make educational and behavioral decisions that are in your child’s best interest. As parents/guardians, I need you to assist me in making these important decisions. Working together as a team will help to ensure you child’s educational wellbeing at Berea Middle School.
Thank you so much!
Mrs. Patton

button I have listed our classroom expectations and procedures on my class information page for you to review with your student. These expectations and procedures have been explained in our classroom, but I feel that with your support they will be more easily enforced. This is going to be a wonderful year for everyone. I look forward to seeing you soon.

I can be reached at 355-1700 or
