My name is Patience Edwards and I am a 4th grade math/science Master Teacher at Briargate Elementary. I've taught kindergarten for four years, first grade for two years, second grade for one year , 3rd for two years and this is my first year teaching 4th grade. I attended school in New Orleans, LA and received my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I also received my master's degree in Administrative Education at the University of Missouri St. Louis. This is my first year at Briargate Elementary and I am thrilled to be a part of the family! I absolutely love teaching and I love when children perceive learning as fun. My goal is to promote learning as well as create new and memorable experiences for children to grow and learn from. I am a firm believer that every child can learn as long as they are given an opportunity and resources needed; thus I give it all I've got!
