About Miss Patterson
Hello! I'm Melissa Patterson and this will be my fourth year teaching here at Philomath Elementary. A little bit about me: I grew up in Sherwood, OR and played basketball from 3rd grade all the way through high school; basketball is a huge passion of mine and the Staff vs. 4th grade basketball game is my favorite event of the school year! As far as my education background goes, I received my Bachelors in Human Development and Family Sciences with a focus on early childhood education in 2009 from Oregon State University (GO BEAVS) and went on to receive my Masters in Teaching in 2011 from George Fox University. Below is a little bit more about me, in pictures!
