Patti Rudick, Lower School Dean of Students

Please help us welcome Mrs. Rudick, our new Lower School Dean of Students, Science Specialist, and Director of Summer Programs.

Mrs. Rudick has a Bachelor of Science in radiation sciences and a master's in K-12 education, with an emphasis on technology. She has 15 years of experience in education including classroom instruction, laboratory instruction, curriculum development, and administrative duties. She is currently pursuing a doctorate in education. In her previous role, she served on committees related to best practices, process improvements, campus improvements, student life, and inclusion. Here is what Mrs. Rudick has to say about why she wants to work at Villa. "It is clear that Villa offers a sophisticated educational experience. After meeting with staff and faculty it is obvious that Villa provides intellectual academics through quality curriculum delivery that allows the student to learn by doing. The overall environment is naturally inclusive, supportive, and loving. I am looking forward to bringing my experience and background into action with our students. I hope to ignite the ‘science spark’ within each student by providing support in our science lab and collaborating with our amazing teachers. I am also super excited to facilitate positive student experiences and support our students as they learn and grow here!" Welcome, Mrs. Rudick!
