Mrs. Maria Patino

Welcome to what I know will be a great school year! 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, G.T., General Education, and English as a Second Language. 


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, I am a mother of two boys (3 if you count my dog who thinks he is one of the boys. My older son graduated in 2021 from Hutto High School. My younger son will be a 5th grader this year. When I'm not teaching, spending time with my husband, or watching my boy's sporting events you can find me on a running trail with my friends. I'm not very fast any more, but I still get out there.
