Mrs. Pat Patton

Biography: My name is Patricia Wilgis-Patton, but my students simply call me Mrs. Patton.  This is my third year at South Waco and my seventh year in education.  Prior to teaching, I was a chaplain at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center.  I grew up in Bel Air, MD, but got to Texas as fast as I could.  My husband and our children moved to Abilene in 1975 and we love Texas!  I graduated from LeTourneau University in 1996 with a Bachelors' in Business Management and from Truett Seminary and Baylor University in 2001-2002 with Master's in Divinity and Clinical Gerontology.  I have been married for 49 years and have 4 children and fourteen grandchildren. I have 7 dogs and 2 cats. I love to listen to audiobooks, write devotionals, work in my yard and in my house.

My Why: I love learning and want to share that joy with my students.
