Ms. Stephanie Patterson
I am so excited for this year and teaching 4th grade! A little about myself my name is Stephanie Patterson I am from Napa, California. I joined the Army and served 10 years as a Military Police Officer. I have been a Police Officer for the last 6 1/2 years with WPD. During my military service I was blessed to have the chance to be the D.A.R.E. Officer for the Waynesville School District for 3 years, and fell in love with teaching and working with children. I attended Columbia College and have a BS in Criminal Justice. I then obtained a Master's from Drury University in Elementary Education. This is my third year teaching and I am so lucky to be doing it at such an amazing school and group of students! I have lived in the Fort Leonard Wood area for the last 12 years. I have a daughter who is in 2nd grade here at Freedom and look forward to staying and growing within this school and this community. Hobbies of mine are being outdoors: hiking, boating, fishing, doing DYI projects and spending time with my daughter Samantha and my dog Kody.
