Dear Patterson Families,
I hope that your summer has been a fantastic one! I feel very fortunate to be the new principal of Patterson Elementary School and cannot wait for the 2014-2015 school year to begin.
This will be my 15th year as an employee in the Hillsboro School District, my 13th year living in Hillsboro and my 2nd year as a parent of student in the district. I truly believe that it is a wonderful community to be a part of and feel connected to this city.
I grew up for the most part in Tigard, Oregon and after graduating from Linfield College, I started my teaching career in Hillsboro at Poynter Middle School as a math teacher. In 2007, I became the Dean of Students at Brown Middle School and then moved into the Assistant Principal role there from 2010-2013. This past year, I returned to Poynter as the Assistant Principal before being appointed as the Principal of Patterson.
In the short time that I have been at Patterson, I can see what a wonderful staff we have and what a supportive community we have. I look forward to working with you and your student(s) and creating a terrific learning environment for all.
Audrea Neville, Principal
