Hi my name is Nurse Patti and I have been a pediatric nurse for 30 years. I have worked as the nurse in the STARR program at Reed Intermediate School for the past five years. Prior to that I worked at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital on pediatrics and as a one to one nurse for a student with special needs in the Newtown School district. I love working with children and their families in the school system. I have three grown children that my husband and I enjoy spending time with. I also enjoy my volunteer work with Best Buddies and with Catholic Charities. On weekends you will find me skiing with my family on Okemo Mountain in Vermont . I am so excited to join the Middle Gate Elementary School Family and I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone.
