Mrs. Maria Patino
Welcome to what I know will be a great year in 3rd grade. I have obtained a Master’s degree in Psychology, Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and an Associate in
Early Childhood Development. I am certified to teach Special Education, General Education, and English as a Second Language (ESL).
My goal for your child is that he/she will develop a love for learning. I am committed to establishing a classroom atmosphere where students feel safe, respected, and valued. I want
my students to know I care about them and that I am here to help them achieve their personal best!
On a personal note, I am a mother of two boys (3 if you count my dog who thinks he is one of the boys). My older son used to play football, but now has a part time job and is focusing
on his senior year at hutto high school.When I’m not in the classroom I’m cheering on my almost 10 year old son at soccer. My husband is in the Reserves after doing 20 years in the Army. He now
works for a technology company in Austin. When I’m not with my boys or your children you can often find me on a running trail with my friends. I’m not as fast as I
used to be, but I still run races.
