Principal - Courtney Ellis Spitzer
Hello, R. F. Patterson staff, scholars, and families ! My name is Courtney Spitzer, and I am so excited to join the Wildcat family as the campus principal this year!
I have been in the field of education since 2004. I am fluent in Spanish and have served as a teacher, team leader, coach, and administrator. I am coming to you from the Jandrucko Academy for Early Learners in Mansfield ISD where I have had the privilege of serving as the Dean of Instruction since it opened. I am passionate about early literacy as well as the power of Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) to set up all students for academic success in elementary and beyond.
I cannot wait to meet the staff, scholars, and families at R. F. Patterson Elementary, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve in a district that is clearly committed to excellence!
