Hello Tiger families! I’m Karie Patton, and I am the new nurse at Tuscany Heights. I’m excited to join TEAM TUSCANY, and I can’t wait to see all of your smiling faces! Before joining NEISD, I worked in the Intensive Care Unit and in the operating room with regenerative medicine for neuro/spine surgeries. In addition to my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Texas Tech Health Science Center, I also have a degree in agricultural journalism from Texas A&M University (Class of ’99 - WHOOP!). I have been married to my husband, Brett, for 21 years, and we have two sons: Carter attends Texas A&M University in College Station and Charlie raises show pigs at Madison High School. Both of my boys grew up at Tuscany Heights Elementary, and I’m thrilled that I get to be a part of this wonderful campus again. I am looking forward to a great school year where we will focus on fostering healthy habits, awesome hand hygiene, and staying well! Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have about your child’s health.
