My name is Leialoha Van Patter and I am so excited to be teaching your child this year. This is my second year at Lakewood Elementary and I am very happy to be here. I grew up in Northern California, right outside Sacramento. I continued my education at a community college then went on to Hawai'i to receive my 4 year degree from Brigham Young University - Hawai'i. While at University, I met my husband, Alan. We have been married for nearly 8 years. We have twin boys starting first grade (at Lakewood) and a baby boy that is 2 1/2 years old. We have been in Texas for 6 years and enjoy the people and hospitality.
I want to keep open lines of communication between school and home. Please click the Bloomz app link, third one down in the gray box on the right-hand side, and follow the directions listed there to get set up to receive news, photos, and updates about your child's new classroom!  You will also be able to utilize this app to sign up to volunteer, schedule parent-teacher conferences, and much more!
