Hi! My name is Dana Patterson and I teach 1st grade at Fairmount Elementary School. I love working with the students, staff, and parents in Fairmount.

 

About Me

I was born and raised in Pickens County, Georgia. I currently still live in Pickens County. I graduated from Dalton State College in December of 2013 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I also graduated with an ESOL endorsement. After graduating I worked at a daycare in Jasper until I was hired at FES in September of 2014. This is my second year as a first grade teacher at FES and I absolutely love my job.

My fiance (Cody) and I have been together since our senior year in high school. We got engaged on December 13, 2014 in the middle of the Holiday Nights of Lights, at the Botanical Gardens in Atlanta. We will be getting married at the end of this year. Cody is currently attending Dalton State College for a BSE in Early Childhood Education also. We are huge Georgia Tech fans and love to go to Tech football games.
