Hello! My name is Tia Patton and I teach art at Madisonville Middle School. I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary (K-8) education with a minor in English at Tennessee Wesleyan. I later earned my endorsement in art education taking classes through Pellissippi State, the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and Lee University. I have also completed my Master's degree in Reading Education with a Reading Specialist license through Carson Newman.
I am married to my husband, Steven, who is also a teacher. We have two children, Hunter who is a sophomore at Tennessee Wesleyan and Cadence who is in 8th grade. We also have a dog, a bluetick named Tod. We love spending time together as a family! I love to read, watch tv, traveling to new places, and trying new restaurants. I'm so excited to have each of you in my class this year! It's definitely going to be different but I know it's also going to be a lot of fun.
