Hi! My name is Erin Gavigan and I’m thrilled to be teaching Math, Science, and Social Studies this year! I have 9 years of classroom teaching experience in first grade. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood education from Texas State University. My husband, Michael, and I are proud parents to our 9 month old son, Carter. When I’m not at work I enjoy going to sporting events, working on home projects, and spending time with family. I’m also busy watching and participating in all the fun firsts with Carter.  I am delighted to spend this next school year working with your children!

Hi! My name is Madison Haran and I will be teaching reading and

language arts this year. I’m excited to join the first grade team at

Pattison Elementary! I am from Mansfield, Texas, and  I graduated

Interdisciplinary Studies, and a Master of Education in Curriculum

and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading and Literacy. In my free time

I love to read, experiment with new recipes, spend time with friends

Hello! My name is Lyndsay Koestler. This will be my 3rd year teaching Math, Science, and Social Studies at Pattison. I attended Pattison the year it opened, and have enjoyed returning as a teacher! We moved from New York City six years ago with my husband, Larry, and our son, Henry (8). Shortly after we moved to Katy we had our daughter, Hannah (5). I went to the University of Texas in Austin and then finished my undergraduate education at RIT in upstate New York. My family and I live in the neighborhood, and our children are in kindergarten and 3rd grade at Pattison. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, running along the bayou, and reading.
