Hi, everyone! My name is Libby Patiño, and I'm so happy to be part of the 4th Grade Team. More importantly, I'm thrilled to be your teacher!!! It's going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures, and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know ALL about you, but first, I'm going to tell you a few things about me.
I'm an Indiana native with family members in Colombia! It's a cool place located in South America. My dad speaks Spanish & English, and I love both languages! I love to travel, especially to Spanish speaking countries... Mexico and Cuba are two of my favorite places I've seen! In fact, I taught elementary Spanish for 15 years in Carmel, and this school year will be my 31st year of teaching! WOW!
I have 3 "furry kids" at home! Luci is my Chihuahua and Addy and Wylie are my rescue kitty cats. All of us enjoy being outside all year round!... My favorites include working in the yard, reading a fabulous book, walking the dog, and playing in the snow! I love chocolate~the smell of fall~snowy days~the Colts~and so much more!
I'm so excited to be your teacher and for you to be part of this AWESOME class of new "4th grade leaders"! See you soon in D3!
