J.A. Patton Elementary

   Music Teacher






I started teaching at Patton Elementary in 2009.  Prior to teaching music at Patton, I worked one year in the Round Rock ISD, before continuing my education.  I entered Austin ISD as a middle school band director then decided to teach at the elementary level.  Teaching the children of Patton Elementary has been a joy and a blessing.  I am proud to be the composer of the Patton Elementary School Song.  I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and a Master’s Degree in Music Composition both from Texas State University.

Music Teacher






I have been teaching since 2012. I studied music at Texas State University and chose music education when my oldest son was born. I have taught in programs emphasizing Leader in Me, International Baccalaureate, and SEL. I have taken three years of Kodály training and enjoy teaching students traditional folk music and games from the United States and Central America. I also enjoy introducing students to music and games from around the world. As a mom of three boys I am so excited to be here at Patton. Follow us on Twitter @PattonSpAreas
