Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Patricia Boyt


My name is Mrs. Boyt, and I have been an EL (English Language) teacher here at Eastern Heights since 2018, but I have been teaching EL in St. Paul Public Schools since 1999. I taught for 2 years in the Peace Corps in Poland and spent 5 years teaching in Istanbul, Turkey where I met my husband, John who teaches English at Johnson High School (go Govies!). We have two children who also attend St. Paul Public Schools: Sam attends Como High School (go Cougars!) and Martha is at Murray Middle School (go Pilots!).

Although I live here now, I grew up in a small coastal town in California and I still have a hard time dealing with Minnesota winters. In my free time I love to read books, travel, garden and go thrifiting and garage-saleing. I am excited for a new year, even though I realize how difficult distance learning can be for our EL students.

Please don't hesitate to email me (or call or text my cell phone as we don't have consistent access to our school phones) with any questions or concerns about your child's EL service at Eastern Heights Elementary.
