Alice Cardner, Librarian
Hi! My name is Alice Cardner and I am the librarian at Pattison Elementary. I love what I do! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student get excited about books and reading. My goal as a librarian is to help foster a love of reading by providing our students with many different kinds of opportunities to experience the joy of books and reading.
I have been in education 30 years with 20 of those being in Katy. I am a TCU graduate (Go Frogs!) and a UHCL graduate. I was a high school English teacher and a high school and Jr. High administrator before I became a librarian 13 years ago. My husband Rollie and I have been married for 25 years and we currently live in Katy.
We have 3 beautiful children - Mallory, who just graduated from The University of Texas, Tim, who is a student at The University of New Orleans and Ellie who is a Senior this year at Taylor High School. I truly love my job and I am looking forward to the school year and the opportunity to work with your children!
