Ms. Patricia Cramer
I am very excited to be your child's fifth grade math teacher! I have a BS degree from Buffalo State College of New York, and I am certified to teach both elementary and special education. I use a variety of instructional strategies and engaging, hands-on learning activities to reach every child. It is important to me that every student reaches his/her full potential in a loving and fair classroom environment. My goal is to help students grow academically and emotionally and to help them develop the character traits needed to become not only successful students but also caring citizens.
I am originally from Pennsylvania, but I graduated college and lived for a few years in Buffalo, NY, which is where I began my teaching career about 17 years ago. In 2004, I moved to North Carolina. A little about me -- I have a tenth grader at East Lincoln High School this year. We stay active and enjoy hiking and being outside. At home we enjoy spending time with our pets, watching movies, reading, and crafty stuff! I try to be environmentally friendly and have a strong interest in animals and nature.
Each year is different, but my love of children and teaching remains the same. I'm looking forward to a fun-filled year!
