My name is Pattie Wilcox. I am one of the kindergarten teachers at St. Thomas More. I grew up in ND and taught kindergarten and fourth grade at Nativity School in Fargo, ND before moving to Colorado. Since arriving in the Denver area, I taught pre-kindergarten and preschool at the Willows Learning Center in Englewood and fourth grade at St. Mary's Academy in Denver and then joined the team that started St. Thomas More School in 1994.
We are so blessed you're committed to send your child to St. Thomas More. This is an exciting time for your child as he/she enters kindergarten. I will strive to guide them to find the joy of learning, the abundance of God's love for them, and pride in doing their personal best. Our classroom will nurture a feeling of responsibility and respect for all. The skills we practice daily in kindergarten are building blocks for their future success in school and life. Together we can make this a wonderful school year for them and help them reach every goal they have.
I will keep you informed through my blog and resource links on the STM website. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (link sends e-mail) with any questions or concerns. I look forward to a wonderful school year!
