Patricia Rowe was born and raised in Illinois. She graduated from a two-room country school. In 1955, she surrendered her heart to Jesus Christ. In 1956, she received her B.S. Degree from Illinois State University. Patricia authored three “how to” books for teachers, having been published in 1968, 1970 and 1972, after receiving her M.S. Degree from University of Minnesota-Mankato.
Patricia has taught a variety of “normal” to “special needs” students in public and private schools. She has also taught ladies and children in Sunday school and other meetings. Presently she lives in Pennsylvania, retired, yet teaching Bible groups. Her concern is that all children receive the education they need at school, so they may thrive in adult life. She has enjoyed teaching, believing in that God made her to be a teacher. These stories are only representative of many days in school, the memories that could be shared. Her life has touched and enriched many thankful students and families.
Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” KJV has been her life verse.
