Third Grade

Josh Kekkonen
Konnichiwa Patterson!

My name is Josh Kekkonen and I love learning and being a teacher.  As a Colorado native, I was a Jeffco student at Witt elementary, Mandalay Middle School and Standley Lake High School.  I attended Colorado College in Colorado Springs and spent 3 years teaching English in Japan.  My passions include exploring the mountains, nature, poetry and my family.   After being a teacher here for 15 years, I know Patterson is a superb place to teach and learn.  I feel very blessed to be a part of the Patterson community.  Arigatou gozaimasu!

Nancyetta Zakrzewski

Welcome to third grade.  My name is Nancyetta Zakrzewski (Mrs. Z.).  My best friend, Mr. Z., visits and helps out in my classroom.  My sons are grown up and married.  My family is my center.  However, the students in my classroom are an important part of my heart.  I cannot wait to build a community full of learning, laughter, and love.  My philosophy is that everyone in our class is a teacher/learner.  We will explore ideas and create our own learning in a place that is safe physically, emotionally, and intellectually.  I promise, I will love you.  I use Teaching With Love and Logic to help us know how we will treat each other in our community.  I truly cannot wait to get to know you.  Love, Mrs. Z.
