2019-20 School Year
Welcome! I am Patti Coffie, 6th grade math teacher at Currituck County Middle School! This is my 33th year in the classroom and my 20th in Currituck County Schools! I am excited to be at Currituck County Middle School for a third year after spending the last 7 years as the Middle School AIG Coordinator for both of our county middle schools. We are going to have a GREAT year!!
I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education in 1987 from The State University of New York, College at Plattsburgh. I also received a Masters of Science degree in Elementary/Middle School Education from Old Dominion University in 1995. I earned AIG (gifted) state certification in 2005 and in 2009, I achieved National Board Certification, a professional level certification that both honors and recognizes the highest teaching standards. I worked to renew my National Board Certification and managed to complete that renewal in 2018!
I currently live in Currituck, NC with my family. My husband Greg is a structural engineer at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
As for the children, my daughter Krysta graduated in 2014 from UNC Chapel Hill (Go Tarheels!) with a degree in Public Policy. She is currently living in San Diego, telecommuting for an automotive company in Los Angeles!
Kayla graduated NC State (Go Wolfpack!) in May 2017 with a degree in Polymer and Color Chemistry. She is working as a formulation chemist for a company that makes "green" household cleansers and toiletries!
Colin just graduated from JP Knapp Early College High School and COA with an Associate's degree in Engineering. He is on his way to UNC Charlotte (Go 49ers!) to complete his Bachelor's of Engineering degree!
All three kids have been through the Currituck County Schools. So I can not only see the teacher point of view, but I have been there as a parent as well!
I can't wait to get to know all of the students! I look forward to working with all of you and I am sure we will have a very productive year!
Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
