Special Education

Katie Carvalho

My name is Katie Carvalho and this is my first year at Patterson! I started out as a K-8 special education paraprofessional and speech language pathology assistant. I received my Master's degree in special education during that time and became the middle school learning specialist at a K-8 school in Highlands Ranch. I got married the summer of 2019 and we recently bought our first home together! We have an Australian Labradoodle named Kobe and will soon be adding another puppy to the family. I love the outdoors, traveling, spending time with family, and reading. 

Since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be a teacher. I grew up helping in my mom's kindergarten classroom and playing "school". I enjoy interacting with kids of all ages; through babysitting/nannying, working with students K-8, and being a leader at my church's youth group. I deeply value the unique abilities of each student and finding creative ways to empower them to reach their full potential. I try to foster independence and a love of learning by developing meaningful relationships, relevant learning tasks, and valuable life skills. I am so happy to be joining the Patterson community and can't wait to work with my new students!
