Mrs. Mary Patterson began teaching Spanish at Newton Christian in the fall of 2009 and became the Dean of Students in the summer of 2011 and the Principal in 2016.  Before moving to Newton, Mary, her husband and her two children lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina as missionaries.  As a teacher, Mary loves to tap into students' natural inclination to create and discover and to point them to a loving God who is the source of all we are and have.  When she is not at school, Mary and her family love to travel and see new sights.
