October National Teacher of the Month
Our teachers across the county are the game-changers. They are dedicated, passionate and truly know how to engage each of their students every day.
It is incredibly hard to choose just one teacher each month, but we are pleased to announce that our 2019 October National Teacher of the Month is Patty Blankinship of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Lakeway, TX!
Ms. Patty is a wonderful infant 1 lead teacher! She provides such a nurturing and loving environment for our youngest students. She loves to create beautiful artwork for our families to enjoy for many years. Ms. Patty takes time each day to create sweet LuvNotesTM full of picture collages. She is loved that she even has her former students (now toddlers) come by her room to see her at pick-up. We are so thankful for Ms. Patty and appreciate all she does to make the infant program amazing at LSP Lakeway!
Here is some fun information about her and what makes her such a standout!
