Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Patti Bechtler

I am a native of Rock Hill, and I have been teaching for twenty-six years. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop College and my Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from  the University of South Carolina. 

My husband Bryan and I are very proud of our two sons and their accomplishments. Mitchell, our twenty-four year old, is a firefighter for the city of Rock Hill and also a volunteer firefighter for Oakdale Fire Department. Our son Brandon is twenty-two years old, and he will be graduating in December from Clemson University with a degree in Industrial Engineering.

Teaching is my passion, and I cannot imagine myself doing anything else. I love helping children succeed and encouraging them to be the best they can be!

I spend my free time reading, cooking, and relaxing with my family.
