Mrs. Patti Wisniewski


I'm Patti Wisniewski, and I'm one of the new Elevate teachers.  This is my second year as a Special Education teacher at Vines HS.  I'm so excited about joining the Elevate team!!!

I graduated from Illinois State University, and came to Texas from the Chicago area with my husband and fur baby in August 2021.  

  • The Elevate classroom serves students requiring specially designed instruction (SDI) at the prerequisite level beyond what can be provided in a general education or resource classroom. Students receive the majority of their core academic instruction in the Elevate setting. This classroom is designed to address functional academics, social skills, communication, self-advocacy, daily-living skills, and independent or interdependent living skills.  Student schedules are individualized and inclusion in the general education classroom is based on the individual student.
