Mrs. Amy Patterson came to KCA in 2020 and has been working in early childhood education for the past 14 years. She was born in Charleston, South Carolina. She grew up in a military family so she has lived all over the place. She is one of 7 (5 sisters and 1 brother), and has been married to her husband Stephen for 15 years this coming August. Their two children, Marc and Sophia, both attend KCA. Marc is in 8th grade and Sophia is in 2nd grade.
In her free time she loves to craft, go hiking, and ride bikes with the kids. They really enjoy swimming as a family. Cooking is one of her passions and she is always looking for new ways to make learning fun, easy, and an adventure for the kids in her class. Her favorite scripture is Psalm 9:9-10.
