Patty Harris

Hi. My name is Patty Harris. I teach the STEAM class here at Tolbert Elementary. This is my fourth year teaching the STEAM class. The acronym STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. This is my 16th year teaching, and my 8th year teaching at Tolbert. Before I went back to school to get my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, I work at the hospital as a Medical Technologist. Since getting my bachelor's degree in teaching, I have gotten my Master's in Early Childhood Education and my Specialist's degree in Teaching and Learning. I am married and have two grown children. I love to travel and go to Disney World.
