Sixth Grade

  Laura Espinal
This is my 12th year at Patterson where I have taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. Before that I taught 5th grade in Brighton for four years. I also had the opportunity to serve as a Community and School Resource Volunteer in South Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer for two and a half years. There I worked with four different schools grades K-8, mainly working with teacher development and other community service needs. 
At Patterson I serve on our Building Leadership team as well as the Healthy School Team. It's been an honor to help our school move in new directions and continually strive to improve. I'm proud to have been a part of bringing the 100 Mile Club to Patterson, as well as facilitating various school improvements such as the cafeteria, playground, track, and the new gym floor. I love making our school a better place for students! 
I am looking forward to another year in 6th grade; outdoor lab and exhibition are two of the most exciting events I get to help students with. Patterson is a wonderful school and I am proud to be a part of it!

Hi, my name is Roger Wright and it is my pleasure and honor to get to work with your children and the Patterson community. Teaching and the world of education have become a profound part of my life that I look forward to being a part of for another 20 years plus. I have been teaching in one form or another for the past 25 years; 7 years as a martial arts instructor, 7 years at a treatment facility for at-risk youth and the past 11 years here at Patterson. With that said, I will do everything in my power to ensure that your student has a great year of learning and growing as both a student and well-rounded person. I whole-heartedly believe in our vision statement, "Developing the Whole Child to Their Full Potential." Not only have I seen this experience daily here at Patterson as an educator but also as a father. My daughter is a K-6 Patterson Alumni and I cannot praise this staff enough for the positive influence they have made on her education and over-all well being. Patterson is a caring and compassionate community, and I look forward to spending this year with you!
