Patricia earned her Master of Library and Information Science degree, as a school library media specialist, in 2006. As a graduate student at Rutgers, she was a research assistant for the Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries (CISSL). She has served as a school librarian for over ten years, beginning at All Saints Episcopal Day School in Hoboken, New Jersey, where she was also a language arts teacher. She comes to us from The Child School/Legacy High School in New York City where she established the library, developing a collection and creating services for the school community. She is passionate about literature and information resources for young people and finds great joy in the perspective and humor they bring as they discover the world, make connections, and share ideas and experiences. Patricia has lived on Pacific islands, in Africa, and in Europe. She has traveled to Australia, Asia, and South America, knows Spanish, and speaks French fluently. In addition to being an avid reader, she enjoys photography, museums, planning trips, and spending time with her daughter and son. She is delighted to be joining the Trinity School community.
