A Warm Welcome to Our Resource Room Teachers

Pat Murlless

We are delighted to welcome Pat Murlless as a volunteer teacher in our Resource Room! Pat is a retired educator with 38 years of classroom experience in grades K-3. She taught in Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona and has resided in Tacoma for one year. She received her BA and MA in Education from Arizona State University and was a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Childhood (2004-2014).

Pat finished her career as a Title I Reading Specialist and enjoys working with children. She and her husband of 44 years (Jim) are proud parents of four and grandparents of six.

Pat looks forward to working with the children of St. Patrick Catholic School!

Patty Davidson

We are also thrilled to welcome Patty Davidson back to St. Pat’s. Patty retired last spring, after teaching art here for 26 years. Her educational background includes a BFA and a BS in Fine Arts, from Mount Joseph University in Cincinnati, OH, and an MFA in Ceramics, from the University of Puget Sound.
Patty shared that the chance to work with our students, one-to-one, was an opportunity she couldn’t pass up!

We are very blessed to have the generous support of these two amazing educators.
