Mrs. Patricia Ajlani
Since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a teacher. For many years, I followed different paths, eventually working as a social worker for people with developmental disabilities for over 15 years. The wish to teach stayed with me & over the years I volunteered at various schools & was a substitute teacher. One day, I decided to change direction & fulfill my childhood dream. In February, 2015, I was hired at Marion Oaks Elementary. I love being here.
I am a native Floridian, born & raised in Gainesville. I did move away to live in Clearwater, Florida for 20 years. At the end of 2014, I moved to Ocala to be closer to family and also join together with my childhood friend, Sam Ajlani. On 7/2/2016, we married! Together, we are raising my two youngest grandsons (Bryce is 11 & Blake is 9). I have two other grandchildren & two great grandchildren! My life is full of smiles, laughter and excitement.
I am excited about the upcoming year! I look forward to working with each child, helping them grow & learn, as well as adding more smiles, laughter, & excitement for everyone!
