Patti Francis is a mom of three sons and one daughter and the grandmother to seven amazing grandchildren. There is nothing she has enjoyed more than being a mom, mother-in-law and now grandma to these compassionate and awesome human beings. Teaching has come the closest to the wonder of parenting – watching and guiding the developing human being into all he or she could possibly become.
Patti is in the process of completing her Secondary Montessori training through Cincinnati Montessori Secondary Teacher Education Program. She taught Middle School ESL for three and a half years in a Nash-Rocky Mount middle school and then moved to Charlotte to be closer to family.
For the 2015-16 school year, Patti taught one semester of English language development to 9th-graders, and in the second semester, she taught 9th grade English to English language learners. She is thrilled to be back in middle school and back to her original passion of language arts.
Outside of school, Patti enjoys running, bike riding, swimming, hiking, jigsaw and crossword puzzles, writing and reading.
