Welcome to Ms. Patterson's Kindergarten Page!
We make learning memorable by making it fun!
I graduated from The University of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I then went on to graduate school at The University of Charleston where I received my Master’s in Early Childhood Education. I have also been National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certified since 2004. I love our school and get to bring my daughter Elly with me every morning! My son is at Ft. Johnson Middle School. I grew up here in Charleston. I have been teaching since 1999. I taught Child Development and Kindergarten at St. Andrew’s School of Math and Science prior to JIES.
I feel very fortunate to work with some of the most dynamite faculty and staff in one of Charleston County's most beautiful schools! My assistant Lynn Shephard has an extensive background working with children and together we make a great team. In our classroom we strongly believe in developmentally appropriate early childhood practices where students thrive using a hands on multi-sensory approach.
