Bees (Pre-K)

Patti Connally

Patti Connally, her husband, and two children have been members of ClearView Baptist Church since 1999. Both her daughter and son graduated from CCC.  Patti has taught in the CCC program since September 2005, teaching all but one of those years in the pre-K classroom. Before becoming a CCC teacher, Patti taught early childhood special education in the public school system for eight years. She has both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Special Education and works in the ministry for special needs students at ClearView on Sunday mornings.  She also participates in Community Bible Study at ClearView on Fridays, including teaching the four year old class during their Bible study time.

Teaching preschoolers is Patti’s passion and spiritual gift. It is a joy to spend each Tuesday and Thursday working with these precious students and ministering to their families!  She loves seeing a child’s face light up with excitement when a new skill is learned and takes the responsibility of preparing her students for kindergarten very seriously.  The Bees class is always buzzing with fun activities, love, and laughter!
