""Hello Colts!  My name is MaryLou Zeiders and I am so excited to begin my 33rd year teaching!   You know if you do something for thirty-three years, you must really love it, and that it is certainly true for me.  I grew up in Chicago, received my degree in Elementary Education from Quincy University, and later earned my Masters from Lamar University.  My husband, David, is a Paramedic, and we have two sons, James, who teachers 6th grade in Denton, Texas,, and Sammy, who is a Business major in college.   James and his wife, Jordan, who is also a teacher, have a beautiful newborn son, Lincoln,  When not at school, I enjoy taking road trips, reading good books,  and writing stories in my journal.  What a treat it will be to teach Reading, Writing, & Social Studies to my  students this year!


Welcome to Fifth Grade!  My name is Betsy Engelmann, and I am excited to be your child's teacher. I am originally from Massachusetts where I graduated from Boston University. I moved to Texas to teach over thirty years ago. I completed my graduate work at Stephen F. Austin State University.  I love teaching science and exploring the world around us.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, trying out new recipes, sewing, card making, and traveling. I am looking forward to an awesome year working with all of you!




Howdy! I am Mrs Flynt and this is my fourth year at Pattison! I grew up down the road in Sugar Land and I graduated from Texas A&M University. Some of you may know me as Ms. Heisler, but I got married this summer and so I am now Mrs. Flynt. My husband Kyle is a high school math teacher, and we have two dogs, Bentley and Stella. During my free time I like to watch Aggie Football and the Astros. I also like to read, play with my dogs, and relax with my friends and family. I will be teaching Reading, Writing, Social Studies and Science this year. I cannot wait to see what amazing things this year has in store!



Hi! My name is Angelica Pereira, and this will be my 13th year of teaching.  Teaching is my passion.  I love to see how my students grow in knowledge and strive to be the best that they can be. I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Houston-Clear Lake and a Masters in Education from  the University of Texas RGV.   My husband, Alistair, and I have three boys;  Alejandro, Armando and Andres.  My family and I enjoy traveling, shuffling through seasonal sports, church activities, BBQ's with friends/family or just relaxing by the pool while reading a good book.  I am looking forward to and AMAZING school year full of great experiences. 


My name is Maggie Steffens and  I am a graduate of Texas Christian University. I have been teaching in Katy ISD for 10 years in both the elementary and junior high setting. I love math and hope to ignite a love of math in all my students. On the weekends, you will find me shuttling around my three kids, Cooper, Charlotte and Cambree Mae to various extracurricular activities. I also enjoy running, biking and eating out with my husband, Scott.




Howdy! My name is Paige Miller. I graduated from Texas A&M University and this is my third year teaching at Pattison in 5th grade. I went to Katy schools growing up and I am thankful that I am able to be teaching at one of the best elementary schools there is! My husband's name is Kyle and he is a Civil Engineer. We enjoy watching Aggie football games, traveling, eating Chick-fil-a, and playing with our two sweet puppies - George and Jefferson.
