Patty has been a Kindergarten teacher at Glen Lake Elementary since 1991, and taught first grade at Katherine Curren Elementary from 1990-91. Prior to that, she taught 4th grade in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and Kindergarten in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota. I completed my Elementary teaching degree at Minnesota State University at Mankato and minored in Kindergarten education, Early Childhood Education, and Special Education. I have done post graduate work at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire and at the University of Wisconsin, Superior. My post-graduate work focused on Science Education for Elementary students.
