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……..
