Patricia C. Arnold
Hello and welcome to my teacher site and to a glorious new school year! This is my 22nd year teaching, all here at Alton Elementary. I have always enjoyed learning new things and especially love sharing new experiences with my students. Each year is a new year, filled with growth and inspiration.
In 1996, I graduated from Southeastern University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I chose the teaching profession because of it's enriching environment, constant focus on the need for change and expansion of knowledge. Our education is what brings our life achievements, successes with our future jobs, understanding and utilizing advanced technology and a competitive edge in our global economy. I have and will continue to pursue professional development through several avenues such as St. Tammany Parish teacher inservices and various college courses ranging from math to special education.
I am looking forward to an exciting year in fourth grade math and science, learning, teaching and preparing my kiddos for success as "forever learners".
