Mrs. Patterson has 19 years' teaching experience and has been teaching English/Language Arts at Trinity School since 2014. She grew up all over the United States - living in 15 different states and 22 different cities by the time she graduated from Lamar High School in Rosenberg, Texas. Although she never went to high school in Midland, when she relocated here with her mother after graduation, she felt like Midland was home and has lived here ever since. She played the trumpet and French Horn in high school and was a soloist singer in her high school Stage Band. Chali Patterson met her husband Monty Patterson here in Midland, and they have twins (Abby and Logan) who attend Trinity School. And even though there is no spare time between the kids, the pets (2 dogs and 3 cats), and grading research papers, Mrs. Patterson continues to appreciate the arts and anything that is creative. She enjoys painting, live theater, concerts, gardening, and loves to discuss her favorite movies and TV shows.
