Mrs. Mary Pat Drew
Hi, Welcome to 1st Grade! My name is Mary Pat Drew and I am honored to teach in Valley View School District, here at John R. Tibbott Elementary! I have been in VVSD since 2007. This is my 8th year here at Tibbott. Go, Tibbott Tigers! Prior to coming to Tibbott, I taught Kindergarten in VVSD; and before that, I was a paraprofessional. Additionally, I have 11 years teaching experience in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grades in private schools, and one year as a pre-school teacher.
I am married, with two grown children; one who works and the other attends Western Michigan University. We have a dog, named Zoey, whom I enjoy taking on long walks. I have recently obtained a Masters Degree in Teaching and Learning, as well as an ESL Endorsement. In my free time, I love to garden, read, do yoga, walk, and spend time with my family. I am looking forward to an enriching 1st grade experience with your child. Tiger Up!!
