• Hi!  My name is Ms. Patti Langford and I will be your child's teacher this year.  I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and obtained my Master's degree from St. Xavier University. Currently, I am certified to teach children from birth through grade nine.  I have also obtained certificates to teach Early Childhood Education and English Language Learners. This is my 17th year in District 117 and my 13th year in the Pre-K program at Sorrick.  Previously, I taught in the Head Start program for four years.  My goal in teaching young children is to have them enjoy coming to school to learn, to discover, and to explore in exciting and fun ways! I am looking forward to teaching your child and getting to know you. Together we can help your child develop a life-long love for learning!
