If you ask Pat why she decided to become a teacher, she will tell you
she had an inspirational grade school teacher and realized what a gift it
was to be able to work with children. The four things that Pat loves most
about teaching are the interactions between the children, the wonder in
their eyes, the connections educators make with children, and watching
students learn and grow. What Pat loves most about working at
Schoolwide is the learning that comes with preparing for different school
settings, traveling to different locations in the U.S., and having the chance
to learn about different educational systems. She also enjoys the
interactions with her colleagues, the laughs they share, and the great
sense of innovation and opportunity that pervades the company. When
she is not leading professional development workshops or creating
materials for Schoolwide, Pat truly enjoys cooking, spending time with
family, walking, reading, and watching sports.
