Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mrs. Patelos and I am your child's teacher this year! Welcome to my page!
I have been a teacher for 16 years. I went to St Francis College in New York City for my Bachelor's degree. Then I continued my way to Touro College, where I obtained a double Masters degree in Education. I began my journey as a teacher in the public school I went to when I was a child, in New York. I was fortunate to work alongside my teachers.
After meeting my husband who was born and raised in North Carolina, I moved down here, leaving the big city behind. Hearing such great things about Johnston County, I was so fortunate to be able to work here, in such a great school.
I absolutely love what I do everyday. I am very dedicated to my work and to my students and my main goal is to see them all succeed in their own ways. I am a big advocate of parent/teacher communication. It is so important to have that communication between us, throughout the whole year. Together we can help your child succeed in the second grade.
