I firmly believe that a healed woman, living on purpose, can change the landscape of her immediate, communal, and global surroundings.
Some people write because they live. I live because I write. This pen and paper is the reason why I’m still here. It is one of the few places I hear God’s whisper in the wind and feel God’s breath breathe into me all that matters.
I fear preaching the Gospel as much as I fear not preaching the Gospel. Therein, lies the only thing I have to offer behind the sacred desk – humility. God will always get the glory.
I still remember the name of every teacher that impacted my life and help shape me into who I am today. When I am in the classroom, I feel the weight of their legacy, and I pray that I don’t disappoint them.
Patrice Gerideau is a teacher whose aim is to empower those she teaches. Although she stands as the expert in the room, she interacts with students in such a way that she demands they reach for the voice that sits quietly within. Then she guides students in allowing that voice to lead them in uncovering what needs to be addressed and/or revealed. Patrice is charismatic, jovial and bold.
