Riverview Gardens School District announced the appointment of Tiffany Patton, Ed.D. as the new professional development coordinator. 

Patton will oversee the District’s initiatives to develop and revise the curriculum to align with state standards and district goals for student achievement. She will also provide teaching, assessment and professional development support for teachers.

“Tiffany Patton is a talented and experienced educational leader,” said Stacey Nichols, Ed.D., assistant superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction. “We are excited to welcome her back to the RGSD Ramily!”

One of the District’s key initiatives under Patton’s guidance will be to provide educational leadership to create and maintain a school atmosphere that supports and encourages the personal and educational growth of students. 

Prior to her appointment, Patton served as a principal in the Hazelwood District and school leader at KIPP St. Louis. 

“I am excited to return to the district that gave me the opportunity to start this journey as an educator 16 years ago when I was hired as a third- grade teacher at Danforth,” Patton stated.

“One of the most exciting parts of my role is leading the acknowledgment and celebration of teachers across the district. It is important that educators feel valued, seen, and appreciated,” she added.

Patton earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri - St. Louis. She later earned a master’s degree in Educational Administration and a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Saint Louis University.
