Joyce Patty

Hello! My name is Joyce Williams Patty.  I am married and have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.  I graduated from Carthage High School in 1986. I received my Associate of Science Degree from Panola College in 1988. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Reading from The University of Texas in Tyler in 1990.  In 1999, I received my Reading Recovery certification, also from The University of Texas in Tyler.  I am a reading specialist at Carthage Primary and have taught here for 23 years.  We strive to ensure each child is successful and that they learn in a way that will provide them reading strategies to use in the classroom as well as at home.  Our motto is: “IF A CHILD CAN’T LEARN THE WAY WE TEACH, WE WILL TEACH THE WAY THEY LEARN.”
