WELCOME/ Bienvenidos

My name is Patricia Patino. For the past 17 years, I have taught dual language/ multiple subject  at the elementary school level in LAUSD. This is my first year at Garfield High School as I make the transition to teaching high school special education alternate curriculum. I am honored to be part of a school with such rich history and pride in the community. 
I am Mexican-American, daughter of immigrants. I grew up in Los Angeles and attended LAUSD schools from elementary to high school.  I have a passion for bilingual education and encourage my students and families to embrace their language and culture.  I am looking forward to teaching special education where I will .motivate and encourage my students to succeed! 
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, picnicking :) , traveling domestically and internationally, and exploring our beautiful, diverse city of Los Angeles. I like learning about other cultures, traditions, religions, food, and history.  In the last couple of years, I have started visiting baseball stadiums around the country with my son--we  hope to visit all 30 MLB stadiums. :) 
Feel free to contact me with any question  and/or concerns.  I look forward to working with you. We are a team--let's work together to help the students reach their goals and highest potential.
