Bio
   WELCOME to Mrs. Patterson’s Fifth Grade Class!! Let me begin by saying how excited I am to be part of the FFCS family, and consider it such a privilege to be your child’s teacher!
   This will be my twelfth year as an elementary school teacher but, my very first year teaching here at Firm Foundation Christian School. I am also a wife and mother of three.  I consider it to be such a blessing to be at a school where I can invest in the lives of my students not only in the area of academics, but also in their relationship with the Lord.
    I graduated from Central Washington University with a B.S. in Education. I have been happily married to my husband, Dwight, since 1991. Dwight and I have three great children; David (24), Daniel (22), and Delainey (17).  September 4, 2016 we welcomed our first daughter-in-law, Tessa, Daniel’s new wife.  David will be marrying our soon-to-be second daughter-in-law Shelby this coming summer 7-1-17.  There is no greater joy as a parent than having children who have chosen Jesus as their savior, we are overjoyed times five!!!  Last but certainly not least, we have the sweetest little rescue dog, Dani-Jo.  We adopted 1/16 and I am now known as the family’s “Crazy Dog Lady”!  She is definitely spoiled, all 12lbs!!!
   When I am not teaching I love to spend time with my family and friends, hiking, playing games, shopping and movies.  I just enjoy being around people, laughing and having fun living this incredible life God has blessed me with.
