Welcome to Pre-K

Hello My Name Is...

< Patricia Batus>

<I am very excited to be back at Long Beach Catholic Regional School for another year.  This is my 26th year at LBCRS, and I am as excited this year as I was the first year I began!
I hold a Master's Degree in English from C.W. Post, a Master's Degree in General and Special Education from Touro University and a Master's Degree in Social Work from Adelphi University.
I have taught sixth grade, first grade, Kindergarten and Pre-K during my time here.
If I had to pick a favorite classroom memory, it would definitely include those "ah ha!" moments when the children clearly understand a concept, such as sounding out words, reading or understanding a math concept.  Above all, I just love to see the children happy!
When I'm not teaching, some of my favorite activities include: spending time with my family, reading, painting furniture, running, water activities and raising chickens.>
