Mrs. Martha Ann Patterson

   Hello!  My name is Martha Ann Patterson and I am the Title I Reading Interventionist at AH Bangert. I will be working with small groups of children (grades K-3) helping them strengthen their reading skills.  My goal is to help my students develop a love for reading that will last a lifetime!  I LOVE MY JOB and think I am the luckiest person to be able to work with such a wonderful staff and to teach some of the greatest children in the world. There is no place that I'd rather be than at Bangert Elementary.  🐻

   I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bacheor of Science in Elementary Education and received a Masters of Science in Early Childhood Education from Old Dominion University. My husband and I have a daughter who is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and a son who is a graduate of Duke University.  We are most definitely a House Divided and of course, my favorite color is any shade of BLUE!  Both Robbie and Charlotte attended AH Bangert Elementary, HJ MacDonald Middle School and graduated from New Bern High School-GO BEARS!! We also have a very special yellow labrador retriever whose name is Ellie. She is a great pet and keeps us very busy.  In my free time I enjoy reading, boating, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

  I am so excited about this school year!  It is going to be a great one. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or questions.  My email is and the phone number for Bangert is (252) 514-5415.  

    Thank you for allowing me to teach your child!  It's going to be a great year!
