        Welcome to 5th grade!

My name is Deb Howard. Let me tell you a little about myself. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences and later a Master's degree in Communication Disorders. I have taught in Mesa Public Schools since graduating from ASU. I came to Patterson the year that we opened and have loved it so much that I have never left. I spent the first seven years as a Speech Pathologist and then went back to school to obtain a teaching degree from Rio Salado.  I love teaching and am looking forward to another exciting year filled with learning and growth.

One of the things I love to do most is to spend time with my family which includes my husband and three children: Ethan, Brady, and Bailey. All three of my kids play soccer so when I am not at school you can usually find me cheering for my kids on the soccer field. I also have two English bulldogs, Trident and Harley, who keep me busy!
