Third Grade Team
Hi! My name is Ashley Rice, and I cannot wait to begin my eighth year of teaching at Pattison Elementary. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, Gig'em Aggies! In my classroom I strive to foster a love for reading while creating an environment where students feel safe, loved, and successful. In my free time, I love spending time with my husband, family, and friends. I also enjoy coffee, shopping, reading, and working out. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with you and your sweet child!
I am Laura Sanders, and this is my 26th year of teaching 3rd grade! I love teaching math and science at Pattison and have been on the staff for 16 years. My sister and ‘nextdoor’ classroom neighbor this year, Mrs. Polnac, is a second grade teacher and we do look alike since we are twins! I am a native Texan, however I grew up in Michigan and graduated from Texas A&M in ‘93. I moved to Houston after graduation and settled in Katy after I got married. I have been married for 23 years to my husband, Jon, and we have three boys (Brandon, Travis and Caleb). Outside of school/work, I love cheering on my boys in their endeavors and traveling with my husband as well as watching college football. I am very excited to be a part of your student’s life this year and look forward to watching them succeed in 3rd grade!
My name is Hailey Moss, and this is my fourth year teaching at Pattison Elementary! I am so excited to be a part of the Pattison family, where I will be teaching third grade math and science! I graduated from the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig Sooie) where I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I also received an endorsement in STEM education! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, hanging out with friends and family, and cheering on the Arkansas Razorbacks! I can’t wait to work with the amazing third grade team and teach your awesome students!
My name is Patti Devlin and this is my third year teaching at Pattison Elementary. I am so excited to part of the Pattison team and to be teaching your children 3rd grade math and science. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering at Cal State Long Beach, but I came to Texas as quick as I could. I am married to a wonderful high school teacher, and I have three grown children (a teacher, a policeman, and a social worker) and the world’s (two) cutest grandsons. It’s going to be a great year in 3rd grade!
