I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Jacksonville State University in May of 2001 and was hired at Eura Brown in July of 2001. I feel very grateful to be surrounded by such a wonderful and dedicated group of staff and co-workers. I have been married for thirty years to my husband Terry, and we have three beautiful children. I attend East Gadsden Church of Christ and draw strength from that relationship daily to hopefully make me a better teacher. Along with the kids, several pets run the Patterson household. We have a trio of English Bulldogs named Darby, Emma, and Kilo. My life is full and blessed in so many ways. At home or at work, there is never a dull moment.
