Pine Street Names Teacher of the Year
PSS Teacher of the Year is Mrs. Lori Patterson!
Mrs. Patterson is our Music Education teacher for third through fifth grade. Having over 19 years of classroom experience enables Mrs. Patterson to work with both the Fine Arts faculty as well as classroom teachers to better infuse the arts into the regular classroom setting while strengthening the core curriculum. Her enthusiasm for the arts is displayed through her willingness to embrace many strategies for teaching from technology to instructional design. As a graduate of the University of South Carolina Columbia with degrees in Music Education and Vocal Performance, she is charged with leading the team that writes our DAP Grant and ABC Grant each year, as well as leading the Pine Street Singers. This year alone, she has taken the Pine Street Singers to perform before the Harlem Globetrotters and had multiple students selected for the SC Elementary Honor Choir. Mrs. Lori Patterson is married to Noel Patterson, and they have two beautiful children, Logan (9th grade) and Lauren (5th grade) who both attend District Seven schools.
