Patricia Martell

Preschool Director

I am so thrilled to be serving as the Preschool Director here at Northwest. I joined the staff in November of 2014, after serving as the Director of the Hyde Park Preschool in Austin for eight years, and Director of Windsor Park Preschool in DeSoto for 3 years. I began serving in Weekday Ministry when my oldest son was a preschooler. After teaching at his preschool, I was invited to become the director, and have not looked back since.

I was fortunate to grow up in a Christian home and attend a Christian school. I trusted Jesus as my savior as a child, but continue to grow in my faith each day. I have a passion for Weekday Ministry, and am very excited about the future of Preschool at Northwest, and being able to serve more families through this ministry. I also love empowering the teachers to serve the Lord to the best of their abilities!

I enjoy spending time with my husband Steve, and our three boys. I also love sewing, crafting and fixing things. I love cheering on my Fightin’ Texas Aggies in football, and watching television and movies with my family. My life verse is Jeremiah 29:11, as I know that God gives us a hope and future!
