Pat started at Methodist in 1986 in the same way most of our teachers did: as a teacher assistant when her children attended. She worked with 3-year-olds until 1990 when she became Lead Teacher of her own group of young 4’s–the age group she still teaches. In January 2000, she became a co-director of the school with Ruth Carlson while maintaining her teaching position. A resident of Lexington for over 35 years, Pat has three grown children and one sweet grandchild. Outside her school time, she enjoys reading, gardening, walking, visiting the Cape, and taking road trips with her husband to see new places and visit grown children and far-away friends.
