Miss Patty Schuch is our Preschool Outreach Specialist. She has a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from St. Ambrose University. With many years of teaching; bringing the Putnam to you and your students is an exciting way of sharing the treasures of education for her.

Miss Patty’s favorite item in the Putnam is the Hall of Mammals. As a young girl she would stand for hours during the summer and gaze upon the beauty of the mammals on display. To be able to share a treasure like the Putnam Museum with youngsters is a dream come true as well as an honor. If she could have one item from the Putnam to call her own it would be the Polar Bear cubs. She thinks they are adorable and  would look wonderful in her home!

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you."
