From an early age, Patricia has always loved school. Patricia attended a Normal school in Colombia for her secondary education that was designed to educate teachers. Because of her love of education, after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, she chose to “return to her roots” and pursue a career in teaching. She has taught many different levels of students over her fifteen-year career, including: high school, middle school and elementary ages.
Before joining St. Peter’s, Patricia came to the United States as an international teacher and taught in a Spanish immersion program in North Carolina, where she taught middle school science and global studies.
Originally from San Gil Colombia, Patricia in very proud and eager to share her culture and language with her students. She is a firm believer in Spanish Language Immersion programs, having experienced the growth and learning of her students.
When Patricia is not in the classroom, she enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, church and traveling.
