Welcome First Grade Families!

  • A little about me...

    My name is Patrisha Pawelec. I have been teaching elementary education since 2010. I have been teaching at Mississippi Creative Arts since 2014. Prior to teaching in St. Paul Public Schools, I taught for four years at a local charter school. As a former student of St. Paul Public Schools, this school district holds a special place in my heart.

    I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from St. Catherine University. I also have a Master’s Degree in Special Education from Saint Mary’s University. As a life long learner, I am always seeking opportunities for professional growth in the field of education.

    I have a husband, one daughter, and a son. My daughter was born on the 4th of July, so summers are always a fun time for my family. My son was born the night before Halloween, so that is another time for our family to celebrate. We also have a dog named, Chevy. He likes to keep us busy chasing his ball around the backyard. My family also loves to spend our weekends at the zoo, shopping at the mall, or just spending time with family and friends. Taking time to read some of our favorite children’s books with my daughter and son is a great way for me to relax after a busy day of teaching.

    First grade is a special year filled with social, emotional, and academic growth. I am always amazed at how much my students grow every year from the fall to the spring. I look forward to partnering with your family this school year to make this a memorable year in first grade.
