    Hi, my name is Jackie Duthler and I am one of the noon aides here at Patterson Elementary.   I am a wife and a mom of 4 children.  My family has been attending Patterson for the past 5.5 years and love this school.  My younger daughters are in 1st and 5th grade currently at Patterson.  I also have a son in 9th grade and a daughter in 7th grade.  I also volunteer teach/aide with the Art Masterpiece program.  I love to swim, be outdoors, garden, crochet and other crafts, and spend time with my family.
