Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Third Grade!
Hello! My name is Mrs. Patty Montgomery. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Columbus College of Art and Design and a certification in Early Childhood Education from Cleveland State University. I also have a Master's of Education with a concentration in reading. I have taught kindergarten, second and third grade. I have also taught at the college level. I live in Hudson with my husband and I have two sons.
I have served on many different committees while teaching in the Hudson City Schools. I have been a third-grade language arts facilitator and have had many opportunities to attend professional development classes in this area. I have also been a lead mentor for our district. I have been a member of PTO for many years and have volunteered at various events.
I consider myself a lifelong learner as I continue to take courses in the field of teaching. I have attended many classes and several week-long conferences pertaining to the Love and Logic approach to working with children.
I believe each child is a unique individual and should be treated as such. I instill responsibility in my students by holding them accountable for their work. The students in my class are not afraid to make mistakes and are encouraged to learn from their mistakes. My high expectations result in high achievement. I want every student to be successful and to expect success of themselves.
I look forward to forming a partnership with each one of my students and their parents. A partnership between parent, child, and teacher is the key to a successful year.
