About Me

Hi there! My name is Mary Patton and I am the School Social Worker at Santiago. This is my eighth year working in education and my first at the Acero Network. I have worked as both a teacher and a clinician in a variety of settings and schools. I have an undergraduate degree in sociology and a master's degree in clinical social work. I grew up in Chicago but have been moving around the country for the last decade. I am thrilled to be back in my hometown and favorite city! In my free time, I enjoy playing with my mini dachshund Frankie, baking, and traveling with my husband.
