    Sophia M. Patterson, Ed.D.

    Literacy Coach

    Hello!  My name is Sophia Patterson and I am the Literacy Coach at Cortina.  I am excited and honored to be returning to Cortina in this role.  This is my 12th year in education and my 9th year at Cortina.  During my years in education, I have had the privilege to be both a primary and intermediate classroom teacher.  Reading instruction was always one of my favorite areas when I was teaching in the classroom.  I am looking forward to working with both students and teachers in reading here at Cortina.  I have such a passion for reading and truly believe that every child can learn with the proper instruction and time.  I hope to share my passion with all that I work with.       

    I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year! Please do not hesitate to contact me by if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
