My name is Kari Patterson and I am SO excited to be your child's first grade teacher! This is my 10th year of teaching, and my 5th year here at Gatesville Elementary. I am a Minnesota girl, who moved to Texas 5 years ago with my husband and boys. I know we are going to do a lot of amazing things this year. Your child is going to grow so much as readers, writers, mathematicians, and thinkers! I am looking forward to spending this year together with them!
