Ms. Patricia Dugan
Welcome to my page! I am brandnew to Mendenhall Elementary but not brandnew to teaching. I am excited to be here. I count it a gift to have the opportunity to work with you and your student, as each child is a precious jewel. This year, we will all work hard, have fun, shine and grow to our fullest potential.
Professional: I have 12 years of teaching experience and 2 years experience as an educational counselor. My goal is to support students from all backgrounds by equiping them to be critical thinkers and self-directed learners. Thank you for entrusting your student(s) to me. I understand the continued success of students is a team effort. Therefore, I will consistently be in contact with you and others who have a role in your student's educational profile. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
Personal: I myself am a mother of two amazing sons, ages 17 & 19. My oldest son is studying computer science at the University of Texas at Dallas and my youngest is a senior at Plano Senior High. This is our second year in Plano. Prior to Plano, we have lived in McKinney, TX; Pittsburgh, PA; and Alpharetta, GA. My hobbies include spending time with friends and family, volunteering (volunteered at a special needs facility in Israel this summer), hiking, dancing, traveling, going to museums and performing arts. To balance work and personal life, I plan to make more time for these activities I enjoy in my spare time.
Also, please feel free to contact me if you would like to know more.
