Welcome to Patterson Elementary! My name is Karen Sobczak, and I love teaching!


This is my seventh year teaching, and my 4rd year at Patterson.  I have also taught at Kindergarten Summit Academy and Pre-K with Community Education for Mesa Public Schools. I have my Early Childhood and ESL Endorsements, and a Masters Degree in Teaching and Curriculum.


A little about me - I am an Arizona native, happily married, and a proud mother of three girls aged 15, 11, and 9.  My oldest will be a Sophmore this year at Skyline, and my younger two girls are Coyotes here at Patterson!  I am a very proud Cheer/Dance Mom with all the oldest dancing on Skyline's Production Dance team, and the younger two girls on competition cheer teams.  They will be competing in Arizona; California, and Las Vegas, NV.  Extra special this year, the younger two will be cheering in the Disneyland Parade!  Besides all the kids' activities, I also play softball year-round on two different co-ed teams in Tempe and Mesa.  As a family, we love to travel and go visit new places.  Eventually we hope to visit all 50 states, but currently we have 16 states checked off our list. 


I hope to make learning fun for each student so they are excited to come to school each day.  I enjoy teaching Kindergarten and love watching my students grow into readers and writers.

Please feel free to contact me anytime either by calling or sending me an e-mail. I am happy to answer any question no matter how big or small.
