Hi. I am Sashna-lee Blackwood-Patrickson and I am so looking forward to joining the awesome group of Second grade teachers and students. I am from the beautiful country of Jamaica which is found in the Caribbean. I recently moved from my country to North Carolina. I attended the International University of the Caribbean, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Primary Education (B.Ed). I have been in the teaching profession for seventeen (17) years , with most years teaching grades 1 and 2. I have found it to be a rewarding experience, one that I strive to encourage students to achieve to their fullest potential and ignite a love for learning.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy crafting, watching Track and Field, sightseeing and spending quality time with my family. Some of my favourite things are ackee an saltfish, jerked pork with roti, animals (except scorpions, snakes, centipedes) and the colour green.
I am excited to be your second grade teacher and can't wait to see what the year has in store!
