DR. PATRICK WINTERS grew up in Lancaster County and is a graduate of Manheim Township High School. He then earned a B.A. in English with a double minor in French and Business Administration as well as a Secondary Teaching Certification from Catawba College in Salisbury, NC. Patrick began his career in education in 1999 as a high school English teacher at East Rowan High School in the Rowan-Salisbury School System, a position he held for eight and a half years. During his tenure as a teacher, he also served as Department Chair, received his National Board Teaching Certification, and earned Master’s degrees in English Education and School Administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Gardner-Webb University respectively. Upon leaving the classroom, Dr. Winters served as an assistant principal at East Rowan High School for an additional year and half before moving back to Lancaster County in February of 2008 to take a middle school assistant principal position at Garden Spot Middle School in Eastern Lancaster County (ELANCO) School District. Patrick spent 10 years in ELANCO in a variety of additional administrative roles including, but not limited to, the following: High School Assistant Principal, Director of Virtual Programs, and Director of Curriculum & Instruction. It was during his time in ELANCO that Patrick earned his doctorate in Educational Leadership and his Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility from Immaculata University. After his tenure in ELANCO, Dr. Winters was afforded the opportunity to serve in Exeter Township School District as their Assistant Superintendent for three plus years before joining the Twin Valley School District family on April 1, 2021.
Patrick is married to his wife of 22 years, Lee, and they have four children – Anna Claire (19), Carter (17), Ella Kate (12), and Charlie (10) – plus two miniature Golden Doodles, Bailey and Maggie. In his spare time, Dr. Winters enjoys reading non-fiction, listening to music, watching Philadelphia professional sports, Penn State football, and Tarheel basketball, and spending time with his family. His favorite book of all time is Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, and one of his favorite quotations comes from former president Theodore Roosevelt who said, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Patrick is proud to be a member of the Twin Valley School District family and is enjoying his service to the District and the larger community!
