Mrs. Patrice L. Cogar

This is going to be an exciting and wonderful school year! I am so excited to begin this new journey with you!  I am honored and thrilled to be your child's teacher again! This year is EXTRA exciting for me because I will be co-teaching again this year, but I am moving to 5th grade! We will be very busy this year learning and growing!  Mrs. DiCristofano is a very energetic teacher and we work VERY well together!  I am a very hands-on teacher and I believe that school is more than reading, writing, and math. In our class, every student will be treated with respect, kindness, care and compassion.  I believe in mixing humor and laughter with the seriousness of education.  I strongly believe that every child who enters our classroom wants to grow, learn and be successful. I am ready and willing to work with you to give you everything you need for success.  Please do not hesitate to talk to Mrs. DiCristofano or myself if you are having a problem in the class.  Mrs. DiCristofano & I both believe that when students, teachers and parents work together, students reap the amazing benefits!
