Ms. Marla Patton

Hello to all and welcome to 3rd grade! This will be my 8th year working for Cartersville City Schools.  I began my career as a special education parapro in 3rd grade inclusion at CES.  Through this experience I discovered my love of teaching and my true passion for education.  I had the unique opportunity to work as a parapro while completing my teaching degree.  I was so fortunate to be able to do what I love every day while honing my craft and growing as an educator.

Outside of teaching I am a Cartersville native and proud alumni of Cartersville High School class of 2008.  I have many hobbies that tend to be on the creative side such as writing, painting, drawing, and repurposing furniture.  I also love going on long hikes with my dog Finn as well as kayaking, scuba diving, and spending time at the beach.  

“Education is a social process; education is growth; education is not preparation for life but is life itself.” - John Dewey

This is going to be a wonderful school year.
