Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Patterson

Mrs. Patterson was born and raised near Springfield, Illinois.  She graduated from Eastern Illinois University.  She and her husband Mathew have been married for almost 16 years. They are proud parents of Mason (7th grade) and Maks (5th grade). Both of their boys play baseball and are involved in church youth groups. Their dog, Morgan, is a HUGE part of their family and your kiddos will hear a lot of stories about her. They recently rescued a puppy, Murphy. He is a Husky mix and is ADORABLE!

As a family, The Pattersons love to go camping, traveling, enjoy outdoor recreation activities, cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys, and spending time with family and friends. As for Mrs. Patterson, she enjoys reading, cooking, going to church, and being outdoors. In the past, she taught kindergarten and third grade, but first grade is her passion.


Mrs. Patterson is beyond excited about returning to Van Raub this year and helping all students be their very BEST!
