Mrs. Miles says, "
A job is what you're paid to do.  A calling is what you're made to do."  She has been a teacher at McAuliffe for several years and she has experience teaching several different grade levels.  Though, she believes that Kindergarten is where her heart is!

Ms. Patonetz has been a Kindergarten teacher for over 10 years, but she has over 28 years of experience teaching in Virginia and Pennsylvania.  She loves to read and she believes that all students are able to be successful.  She has a BS in elementary education from the Pennsylvania State University (Go Nittany Lions!) and a Master's degree in Initiatives in Education from George Mason.  She says that 5 and 6 year olds keep her smiling all daylong.  She loves spending time with her two beautiful daughters and her precious granddaughter and grandson.


Mrs. Klineburger has been at McAuliffe for two years but has taught for several years.  She is happy to be part of the Kindergarten team, and is looking forward to a year full of learning and fun.
