Mrs. Carla Patton

Welcome to Alyssa Ferguson Elementary!

Mrs. Patton was named the founding principal of Alyssa Ferguson during the Fort Bend Board meeting in April 2022. She is humbled and honored to lead the students, staff and community of Alyssa Ferguson Elementary. Previously she served as the Principal of Quail Valley Elementary.  

In third grade, Mrs. Patton had an opportunity to write her autobiography. In her autobiography she penned that when she grew up, she was going to be a third grade teacher. When she started her education journey, ironically enough, the first position she held was teaching third grade students. From a young age, she knew she wanted to positively impact the lives of students just as the teachers she had in school impacted her life.  

Serving in different teaching and administrative roles over the years, she whole-heartedly believes that student growth academically, socially, emotionally and behaviorally is crucial to the development of the whole child. It is her personal and professional commitment to inspire, grow, challenge, collaborate, innovate and support all students and stakeholders. She wants everyone who walks through the doors of Alyssa Ferguson to believe that they are capable beyond what they can imagine. They have the opportunities to make a difference and be a world changer, just like Alyssa. 

She looks forward to meeting the students, families and community members. She is eager to begin the process of answering the question, what does it mean to be an Alyssa Ferguson Firefly and building a shared vision that supports each student in reaching their full potential.  

Shine Bright, Fireflies!
