Who am I?
My name is Ms. Patanio and I am a mom, a wife, a teacher, a learner, an artist, a fashion lover, and anything I want to be! One of my main objectives in this profession is to reinforce the fact that our students can be or do anything and everything they want to!
This will be the start of my 13th year teaching, and have been fortunate enough to teach all grades and most subjects. I am so proud to be in the position I am today because it allows me to teach all subjects while integrating technology and art to prepare our students for the real world. As a G Suite School, we will be utilizing all that Google has to offer in school and at home.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. STEAM is an approach to teaching, and is the direction in which I am headed towards for the future of this program. We will continue to explore the basics of technology and the different platforms we can use. This technological foundation is extremely important to the progress of the class. We will sharpen our literacy skills via this approach while tapping into the academic curricula, Common Core Standards, and ISTE Standards for technology.
