Ms. Patricia Bailey

I went to UNT in Denton where I obtained my BA in Psychology with a minor in Sociology and a Masters in Education in Teaching. I am certified 7-12 mathematics and 7-12 composite science. I have taught 3 years of high school math (Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebraic Reasoning, Math Models and Pre - Cal.), a year off teaching 4th graders Texas History through field trips around Texas to various historical locations, then two years in high school science (Chemistry, Aquatics, and Physics.) This is my 6th year as the classroom teacher, 3rd year in science, and 1st year here in Little Elm and Middle School! 

This year I will be teaching 8th grade science and physics in 8th grade for students to obtain high school credit. I am excited to see where the year will take us and to watch these students' minds begin to discover the world in a whole new way!    

Currently, I live with my adorable and spoiled cat, Tater, in Little Elm/Frisco but, spend any 'free time' I may have in Irving with my amazing S.O. Sean learning to weld, raising chickens for meat and eggs, raising turkeys (for the holidays), crafting, reading, gardening (various veggies and flowers), and constantly expanding my toolbox to learn just anything to build a self-sufficient life. My ultimate perfect world dream, so my retirement goal, is to live on a mostly self - sufficient bio homestead where I only connect to electricity; we live in Texas, home of the 100+ summers after all. 

I am looking forward to an amazing school year!

I am also the STUCO sponsor and hope to build student leadership and STUCO awareness and support for all of Little Elm ISD, the Little Elm community and beyond. 

Currently, I have planned to host STUCO meetings Thursday before school 8am for officers 8:30am for members. This is a new year and new group; we will be building it from the ground up the LOBO way! 

Bailey's Fun Facts of the year: Sunflower edition: Did you know sunflowers can produce between 1,000 and 1,400 seeds per head. A typical 1lb. bag from the store will contain 4,700+ mammoth sunflower seeds, AND you can extract the core of a sunflower stem and eat it! (I have cooked it a few different ways; in a pan, drizzled with oil, a dash of salt, and a dash of garlic powder and it actually tastes like delicious flavored butter!...downfall is that it is a crazy amount of work to get through the stem to the core.)
