Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Stephanie Patterson

I can't wait for a great year with my new Favorites!!!

My name is Stephanie Patterson, and I teach 2nd grade at Sunnyvale Elementary. 

I've been teaching since 1996, after graduating from Baylor University, where I earned my Bachelor of Science Education degree. Sic' em Bears!

My husband, Lance, and I met there our senior year and have been college sweethearts ever since. We married in 1998 and have two sons. Brenden is a Freshman at Oklahoma State University. He's a fourth generation trombone player and especially loves playing in the jazz band.  Blake is a SENIOR this year at Sunnyvale High School and he sings in the Acappella and Daybreak choirs. His true passion is acting! He stays busy doing UIL plays and musicals. Come see him in the musical, Beauty in the Beast, this December! Our family loves being together, especially outdoors, playing cards, taking a boat ride on the lake, and we really love golfing, since that is Lance's job as Director of Golf at Dallas Athletic Club. We are involved in our church, small group and community.

I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.  It has been my calling to teach since third grade and I look forward to getting to know you and your families.  I have previously worked in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, Katy ISD and Midland ISD. I have been a school board member for two years for Bynum School in Midland, TX.  As a Raider parent and teacher, I love our community and this year will be wonderful and we will do this together.  This is my ninth year at SES and the Pattersons are proud to be part of the Raider family!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I'm hoping we get to know each other very well and can communicate often. I'm always here for you and genuinely care.

Let's make it a Raider year!

Love, Mrs. P
