2nd Grade Associate Teacher
Bachelor in Business Administration
Ms. Paty is from Monterrey, Mexico. Her family moved to Atlanta five years ago. Her husband's name is Jose and she has two beautiful children Elisa and Pablo, both at STBS (3rd Grade and Pre-K). She has been a teacher with different age groups ranging from adults to toddlers and although she enjoyed all of them, she prefers working with children. Her love for painting has allowed her to incorporate art in her teaching. One of her most beautiful and rewarding experiences as a teacher has been teaching therapy through the arts to children and adolescents in rehab for substance abuse at a non-profit organization in Chicago called Open Studio Project. She taught at Holy Spirit Preparatory School’s preschool and she worked at St. Benedict’s Nursery as a Lead Teacher and Assistant Director for 3 years. She recently completed an "Autism, Asperger's, SPD and ADHD in Children and Adolescents" certification and attended a training of Special Education in Montessori. She loves to incorporate Spanish in her lessons. She is looking forward to a great school year at St. Benedict’s.
