Mrs. Elizabeth Patterson
Welcome to Hickory Ridge Business and Marketing! I am so excited to have you in class. Business and Marketing are such important subjects that provides you with life skills that will benefit you for years to come.
Some of your may know me as Ms. Brewer, but I recently got married and have officially changed my name. I am an Appalachian State Graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business and Marketing Education. After graduation, I moved to Macon, Georgia to work as an admissions counselor at Mercer Unviersity. I loved getting to work on the university side of things, but soon realized that my place was in the classroom. I moved to Charlotte at the end of 2016 and began teaching at Hickory Ridge in January of 2017. I teach within our Academy of Hospitality and Finance here at Hickory Ridge as well as regular business and marketing courses. We have a growing DECA program, that offers students numerous opportunties to develop their marketing, communication, and presentation skills. If interested, please let me know!
In addition to teaching, this year I will also be taking on the role of Assistant swim coach. I am so excited for this opportunity, as swimming was something I was actively involved in for many years. Below you will find my class schedule for the semester.
