Ms. Clark   



I am Mrs. Patty Clark, the Kindergarten teacher, here at Paterson School.  I have been teaching Kinder for going on 14 years.  I started when my baby entered Kindergarten and she is now beginning her first year at University away from home.


My teaching philosophy is simple, “children learn through play.”  If a child is given the opportunity to investigate and explore their world around them, using their imagination and creativity, their self-esteem and capabilities increase.  Why?  Because by engaging in creative work or play, people treat themselves as a resource worth cultivating.  So, when you hear your child say, “Look at what I can do!”  They are taking pride in their learning and creativity.


Every year I look forward to watching your children learn and grow and become……..
