I imagine if you are here then you are interested in the magical world of fifth grade!  

     My name is Patrick Nordan.  I am entering my ninth year of teaching, my fourth here at Archdale Elementary. Prior to working at Archdale I was a teacher at Tyro Elementary School in Davidson County.  I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, with a secondary concentration in psychology.

     I have had the pleasure of spending all my years of teaching in fifth grade.  I love the age of fifth graders and the relationships we build over the course of a school year! I look forward to getting to know a new group of young men and young women this upcoming school year!

     I am married.  My wife's name is Dana and we have one daughter, Lyla Camryn, and one furbaby, our dog Reece.  I am an avid sports fan and pull for the following teams:

Carolina Panthers (NFL), Charlotte Hornets (NBA), Chicago Cubs (MLB), Seattle Sounders (MLS), NC State Wolfpack (NCAA)

     I love to listen to all types of music and I am always looking to read.  I am a fanatic of Harry Potter (one look at my classroom should be a dead giveaway).  I am a movie buff. My top five movies of all-time in no particular order are:

Jurassic Park, The Temptations (made for tv movie), The Goonies, The Sandlot, and Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows Part 2
