Mrs. Jessie Patterson

My name is Jessie Patterson and I am thrilled to teach your child! This is my fourth year at HWES and I love this wonderful school community. I'm a Columbia native but moved to Lexington when I married my husband, Jason, seven years ago. I enjoy the beautiful commute over the Lake Murray Dam to HWES each day. I knew as a child that I wanted to be a teacher and studied Special Education at Columbia College. I'm an avid Clemson football fan and also love to read, bake, entertain, take pictures, and travel. 


I have two important philosophies that I want to impart to my students: First, if you can read, you can learn anything. Second, we each have unique strengths and gifts that make us special. We all learn at different rates and in different ways. My challenge and joy as a teacher is to discover how each student learns and support them as they become active learners. As we focus on academics in our class, we also learn and practice H.E.R.O. traits that make us better learners and friends. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve your child and help them have fun as he/she learns!


I have your child's best interests at heart and look forward to working with you to help your child be successful in school. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions, comments, or concerns.     (803) 476-3832

I will check emails and voicemails after 3:15pm each day.
