Patty Morand

Hello, my name is Mrs. Morand and I am so excited to teach 4th grade at Pioneer this year. Just so you know a little about me, my family moved to Parker in 1996 and I graduated from Ponderosa high school, where I met my husband, Matt. I attended University of Northern Colorado where I got a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Reading. When I graduated from college I taught first grade and third grade at Milliken Elementary School for a few years. After living in Northern Colorado for 9 years, my husband and I decided to move back to Parker to be close to family. I’ve been teaching third grade at Clayton Elementary school in Englewood for the last ten years.  

My husband and I have been married for 16 years and we have 2 daughters, Molly who is going to be in second grade at Pioneer and Madison who is one, she is the happiest baby ever! We have a few furry babies too, a corgi Rockie, a bunny BunBun and a very old cat named Stormy. Some of my hobbies include watching movies, swimming, walking 5ks and cooking. When I am not teaching I can be found in my kitchen wishing I was a food network star.  

Another thing you should know about me is that I love teaching! I knew I wanted to be a teacher in third grade and now I get to be. I think I have the best job in the world because I get to work with students every day. In my classroom you can expect to have fun while working hard to create, collaborate and communicate with each other. I am passionate about integrating technology into the classroom to prepare students for the 21st century. Research shows that children learn best with a strong home-school connection so open communication is an important part of our learning community. I look forward to working together with families!
