My name is Alane Patrick and I am a Paulding County native. I have been married for 42 years to my best friend, Mark and have two sons and four grandchildren. They are the apple of my eye! After my nest was empty, I decided to return to college and complete my degree in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from the University of Phoenix in 2014 and I began teaching in the Autism classroom at Dugan Elementary School in August of 2015. However, I have 28 years of experience in the Special Education classroom environment as a paraprofessional at Paulding County High School. Go Patriots! I am excited to begin my next adventure at Panter Elementary School! I am also excited about my awesome students and being a part of their success over the next year. Please feel free to visit our classroom and become a part of our team.
