Mrs. Erin Patterson

I am beginning my 16th year of teaching in Watauga County Schools.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University in 2000 and then, completed a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction in 2002.   I obtained National Board Certification in 2005.  Most recently, I obtained my Exceptional Children certification.  For the past 3 years, I have been one of the K-5 Exceptional Children's teachers.  Before becoming an Exceptional Children's teacher, I was a 3rd grade classroom teacher and an Academically/Intellectually Gifted Specialist.  My husband and I have one daughter and we live in Boone.
