Reading Support, Adolescent Enterprise.
Patrice Jennings holds a B.A. in Community Development and Philosophy of Alternative Education from Goddard College. Patrice left her career in retail management in 2009 after stints managing for a number of local businesses, including GreenStar Cooperative Market, Ithaca Bakery, and Borders Books and Music. Patrice is a native Ithacan who feels at home in Montessori classrooms, being an alumna of both the Ithaca Montessori School and Ithaca’s now defunct public Montessori K-2 program, and having spent countless hours in her mother’s school, Montessori County Day from 1975 through 2005; pretty much “growing up” in a Montessori environment. She lives in Danby with her two children, two cats, seven finches, one snake and one bearded dragon. Patrice enjoys researching and learning the answer to any “why…” or “how…” questions she is asked, and reading anything and everything she has time for.
