Second Grade

Susan Elsenbast

I am so excited to be your child’s second grade teacher this year!  This will be my 36th year of teaching, and my 35th year at Patterson.  It has gone by in the blink of an eye!  Building relationships with my students and their families is very important to me.  I feel lucky to be part of a profession I love and the Patterson community.  I am married with two grown sons and dog named Boji. (She is named for Lake Okoboji, which is where I grew up in NW Iowa).  When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family, running, reading, and baking pies.  I am excited about the work we are doing at Patterson and am looking forward to working with you this year.
