Hi! I am Kit Frishman and I have been an early childhood teacher for the past 12 years. This is my 5th year teaching kindergarten and my third year at Pattison. I believe that hands-on learning and individualized instruction are key to building confident and well-prepared learners! I am excited to get to know my new students and embark on a year of discovery! I have been married to my amazing husband Jonathan, who is also a teacher, for 15 years. Together we have three daughters. Our oldest attends SLJH, and we have 2 here at Pattison, one in 2nd grade and one in Kindergarten! In my spare time I enjoy reading, playing video and board games with my kids, playing the piano, running, and hiking.
My name is Marla Burns. I graduated from Illinois State University and have been teaching for 33 years. My husband and I have two children. My son is married and is a dentist. My daughter teaches English in junior high. My granddaughter is in fourth grade at Pattison. I love to swim, read, work on arts and crafts and teach Kindergarteners!

My name is Holly Ray. I graduated from Texas Tech University with my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in math and science. Returning to Pattison as a first year teacher brings my education full circle, as I started my very first day of school walking through the same doors your Kindergarteners will on their first day. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family who still live here in Katy. I am excited to be part of your child’s first year of school and together we will make it a great one!
