Children enjoyed and learnt a lot about the process of writing and being an author. Some of the students have gone ahead and expressed their 'wish to write a book like Miss Patrice when they grow up!
Patrice was…very responsive and engaging during our presentations. All of the teachers and students loved having her visit! Several parents even emailed to follow up based upon how excited their scholars were when sharing about the visit at home!
Patrice McLaurin is fantastic! The students loved her, the teachers loved her, the administrators loved her! She really knows how to connect with students! I’ve already had requests to bring her back again!
