For her outstanding contributions as a middle school and high school teacher, Patricia is recognized on the Donors’ Wall of Fame by Rosemary and John Begley of Overland Park, Kansas.
According to the Begley’s:
Patricia M. Williams believed in and delighted in children. That seemed to be the basis of her ability to engage them and help them think for themselves. She was an enthusiast about all she taught. She ignited the spark in every child, and the child in everyone. She made anything interesting and was never without her keen sense of humor. And how often she recited those words of our Lord! “Let the little children come unto me.”
Patricia taught in the New York City Public School System and Long Island for over 20 years. She taught in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Riverhead, New York.
