My name is Elisa Patterson and I will be teaching the Year 3, 4 in Room 12 this year! 2022 marks my seventeenth year of teaching and fourth year here at Flat Bush School (FBS). 

I come from New Zealand and Samoa. I was born in Auckland, I grew up in Mt Roskill and Lynfield. I am the eldest daughter of Losa Skipps and Graham Patterson. My sisters are Natalie, Shiree and Alayna. I have three beautiful nieces Seini-Elisa, Ava and Tanner and a handsome nephew Hayes. My family is very important to me!

I am an avid reader and enjoy doing craft art. I go to church and also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am learning to speak Samoan and Te Reo Māori and am excited to share this with our FBS akonga. I am proud of my Māori and Samoan heritage. 

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I look forward to partnering with you and your child in their learning this year.
