Mrs. Patty Bowman


I have had the great pleasure of teaching third graders for twenty years. Every year I meet a new class of happy and excited children who are eager to learn. It’s true we learn all about reading, writing, and arithmetic, but it is so much more! We all learn together what friendship means. We learn how to work together, share ideas, and accept one another for each of our special talents and gifts God has given us. Teaching at Blessed Sacrament Huguenot allows me to follow my students as they grow from year to year, from preschool through high school. As I watch my former third grade students graduate from High School, I am able to witness their joy and celebrate their achievements with them. I feel privileged, knowing that I have played a part in their amazing journey!

​More about Mrs. Bowman…

I am from Ohio. I attended The Ohio State University in Columbus. I graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education. My husband and I lived in Columbus for three years, during which time our first daughter was born. Our second daughter was born in a small town in central Ohio.

My husband’s job took us to Louisville, Kentucky where we lived for three years. We loved the city and enjoyed the week-long celebrations that revolved around the Kentucky Derby! Our final move brought us to Richmond where we have lived since 1988.

I came to BSH in 1999 as a third grade teacher. I love teaching third grade! The children are sweet and funny and always eager to learn. I am on the uKnighted Board and serve on various committees at BSH.

In my free time I love spending days with my two grandsons. They are all boy, so I often find myself digging in the mud or stomping through mud puddles. Of course, I am a huge Ohio State Buckeye football fan!
