Pattison Elementary


Fifth Grade Team

My name is MaryLou Zeiders and I am so excited to begin my 31st year
teaching! You know if you do something for thirty-one 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, 23, and Sammy,
21. When not at school, I enjoy taking road trips, reading good books,
writing stories in my journal. What a treat it will be to teach Reading,
Writing, & Social Studies to my students this year!
