4th/5th Grade Reading - Misty Fitzpatrick

Hello My Name Is...

Misty Fitzpatrick  


My name is Misty Fitzpatrick and I teach 4th and 5th grade at McDowell Elementary. I have many fond memories of McDowell Elementary as both a teacher and a student. I graduated from McDowell High School in 1992, being the next to the last high school graduating class. I went on to graduate from Alice Lloyd College in 1996 with a bachelors of arts degree in early elementary education, with an emphasis on fine arts and humanities. During my teaching career I continued my education at Morehead State University obtaining a Master's Degree and Rank 1 in elementary guidance counseling.

I have been teaching for eighteen years and I really enjoy working with children of all ages. I taught one year at W.D. Osborne Elementary and the rest has been spent at McDowell. During my career as a teacher I have served as an academic coach, future problem solving coach, writing cluster leader, and after school tutor. Currently I work with students in the area of reading.

This school year is going to be an exciting one! We (myself included) are going to learn many new things in class. Parents are the most important people in a child’s life, and we need to work together for the benefit of your child. I need you to support my academic, homework, and discipline efforts here at school. In return, I will keep you informed about all aspects of your child’s experiences at school. With school and home working together, I know that each and every student can have his or her most successful school year yet! I’m looking forward to meeting you personally at open houses or anytime you would like to discuss your child. I take the responsibility of caring and educating your child very seriously.


Welcome to 4th and 5th grade where our motto is YES WE CAN DO THIS!
