Heather Patterson
First Grade Teacher

Heather Patterson

Having spent 18 years in Aroostook County, decided I would find out what life was like “down south.” I left the County, to attend the University of Maine at Farmington where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. After receiving my degree, I
taught a variety of grades at Monroe Elementary School in Monroe, Maine. After 7 years, I felt change was necessary and headed a bit north to the Leroy H Smith School. In 2006, I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of New England. I have been at LH Smith since 1999! I love being a teacher and cannot imagine doing anything else. I also love our school and the community of children and adults that make it a fabulous place to work. I am married to a “born and raised in Winterport” man and have one daughter. In my spare time I like spending time with family and friends at camp, reading and traveling. I am Winterport Proud!
