Patti Voelker graduated from the University of Portland with a Bachelor of Arts in Education, a minor in German, and a mathematics endorsement. Over the years, she obtained endorsements in Middle School Science, Social Studies, and English Language Arts.
Patti began her career teaching 6th-grade Humanities and then transitioned into teaching middle school mathematics. She spent several years as a stay at home mom and continued in education as a volunteer, coach and substitute teacher. Mrs. Voelker returned to full time teaching in 2009 and taught math, ESOL, and benchmark skills. She then spent five years teaching online but missed being in a classroom.
Patti joined Park Academy in 2016 and has taught several different subjects and grade levels. She now focuses on teaching mathematics to 6th – 8th graders and providing additional math support. She is very happy that she found Park Academy and looks forward to learning and growing with the Park Academy community.
