Ms. Gatenby


Grade: 1st
Room: 128




My name is Ms. Gatenby, and I will be your child's first grade teacher.   I have been teaching in Gilbert Public Schools for eight years.  This will be my fifth year at Patterson Elementary.  I love teaching first grade!  It is so exciting to watch my students blossom into wonderful little readers, writers, and mathematicians, and discover their natural talents.

I was born in Texas, but being part of a military family, I grew up in seven other states across America.  I have lived in Gilbert for 24 years.  I have 3 grown children, and all of them graduated from Gilbert public schools.  Our two cats, Korbel and Catawba, complete our family.

I hope your child is as excited about first grade as I am!  We will make lots of new friends, learn lots of new things, and make lots of new memories in a fun and safe environment where we support each other with kind words and actions.
