Welcome back to school! I am extremely excited to get to know you throughout the year and I hope we grow as learners and human beings together through expression, discussion, and insight while reading literature and nonfiction texts.
As I get to know you, here's a little bit about me:
Let's get these answers out of the way because these are questions I am FREQUENTLY asked--
Yes, I am Mrs. Kearns' daughter. No, I do not live with her. Yes, I have my own house, car, bills, etc. Yes, we do carpool and spend a lot of time together. No, I do not live in Bartow.
Now for the fun stuff--
My Family: I have been married to Mr. Patton for three years. I have son named Thomas (Tommy), and he is just over a year old. I am pregnant and will have a baby in December. I live in Lakeland (at least for now). I have a hound dog (Heidi) and cat (Chloe).
My Professionalism: I received my Bachelors degree in English Education from Shawnee State University in southern Ohio after earning an Associates at Polk State. I also have a Masters in Curriculum & Instruction from Concordia University. This year will be my 6th year teaching, 5 years at Bartow Campus and now my first year at Summerlin Campus, so you could say I've got BHS blood running through my veins. I also tutor in Lakeland at Huntington Learning Center.
My Interests: I love TV and movies so much! I Netflix and Hulu binge all the time. This is my escape, my brain break during the week. Some shows I like- Grey's Anatomy, The Office, Supergirl/The Flash, The Mindy Project, Gilmore Girls, Grace and Frankie, Parks and Recreation, Scandal, Vampire Diaries, and more! I also enjoy (when I have time) cooking new and different recipes fro my family (for example: I LOVE making all of Thanksgiving dinner). I enjoy scanning Pinterest and Tumblr when I'm bored. I enjoy swimming pools and the beach. When I have a hefty amount of time for myself (which is rare these days), of course, I love reading novels.
FYI- I LOVE THE COLD! You're going to have to deal with it in my room. Bring a jacket/sweatshirt. Do not complain. Also, I'm sarcastic, but you'll get used to it :)
Respectfully in the comments below, I would love to learn about you.
Your name, family life, extra curricular activities/sports/community service, hobbies/interests, and goals for your immediate and extended future (for the year? after high school? career plans?)
