Kelly Patchen.jpg
Hello Bohn Families,
Welcome to Louis Bohn Elementary School!  My name is Kelly Patchen and I feel very fortunate to be the next principal of Louis Bohn Elementary School.  For the past two years, I have had the honor of being Bohn’s Assistant Principal, which has afforded me the opportunity to get to know our amazing school community and wonderful families, the enthusiastic students, and dedicated and experienced staff.  Bohn Elementary is a place where we share a commitment to helping ALL our children to work towards their highest potential, be positive and productive citizens, and take pride in being Bohn Sharks!  My educational leadership beliefs are rooted to a vision that entails placing students as the driving force behind all decisions.  It is my mission to instill a love for learning in all and to ensure our children show respect, make good decisions, and solve problems, as they become critical thinkers and responsible future leaders. 
Teaching and being an educational leader are passions of mine.  Twenty-six years ago my journey as a teacher began.  I have had the incredible fortune to teach all the grades from transitional kindergarten through fifth grade, as well as serving as lead teacher for five years and an elementary principal for four years.  I received my Elementary and Early Childhood Education Bachelor’s degree from Alvernia College in Reading, Pennsylvania.  I obtained my Masters of Education degree at Seattle University focusing upon Curriculum and Instruction as a certified Reading Specialist.  In addition, I have my Administrative Services Credential and International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme certification.  When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family and friends.  My husband and I have two incredible and active teenage boys who we love to spend our time with as we enjoy traveling, sports, and outdoor adventures together.  My favorite hobbies include reading, swimming, going to concerts, watching movies, and cheering on the Seattle Seahawks. 
As your principal, I look forward to each day strengthening the relationships that have been built with all of our wonderful students, families and staff.  It is particularly important to me to make sure your child and you feel welcomed, safe, and respected at our school.  Please be an active part of your child’s school experience. Attend the many family and community events that our school offers, and be involved. Regular and open communication between school and home is extremely important.  I welcome your input and believe open communication is very important in a school and for this reason, I will always encourage you reach out to your child’s teacher, to a member of the office staff, or to me to discuss any questions, concerns suggestions, or ideas.  In closing, thank you for entrusting your child’s education to us!
Many thanks,
Mrs. Kelly Patchen
