Kindergarten Team


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! 



Hi! My name is Emily Fredrickson and I am thrilled to be your child's Kindergarten teacher this year!  I graduated in 2012 with my undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas and I have a Master's in Education from Houston Baptist University. This will be my third year teaching at Pattison and I could not be happier to be here! In my free time I love running along the bayou and planning my upcoming wedding. I am looking forward to a fabulous year in Kindergarten! ​

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.
