Welcome Super Heroes


Hello.  Thank you for dropping by my page.

My name is Cathy Nelson and I will begin my 18th year of teaching this year.  From the time I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to teach little children.  I realized my dream a little bit later in life than most but am enjoying the adventure each new year brings.

I taught 2nd grade at Palmcroft Elementary in Yuma, AZ for 6 years before I married (also a little late in life) and moved to Mesa with my husband in 2006.  I taught at Lincoln Elementary (MPS) for one year (2006 - 2007) and was excited to take the opportunity to teach first grade in my neighborhood school for the 2007 - 2008 school year. I continued to teach first grade for 10 years before transferring back to my favorite grade, 2nd!!  I love teaching at Patterson.  The staff and students are exceptional.

On this page you will find links to our class supply list for the 2018-19 school year, Homework Policy, Patterson Behavior Expectations, Specials Schedule, and other important items. 

I am looking forward to a SUPER 2018 - 2019 year!  Feel free to drop by often!
