"Thanks for all the materials! I've started reading and, mostly, reflecting! 

I'm involved in planning a course for Cooperating Teachers, and I'd like to know whether I can share some of your materials with them. Some novice teachers and also trainees have joined your course. They are all eager to learn more, but there aren't many opportunities as the one you're offering!"

“You are an inspiration to me. Thanks for your advice and help, and all the information. I suppose I just wasn't sure about what I was doing, you made me understand that, while I have a long way to go, I'm learning every day".

"I turned to Patrice for advice and support due to a lack of teaching experience and the requirement to teach abroad for the first time. She is extremely approachable, passionate and knowledgeable about teaching. Despite her busy schedule she provided me with valuable information and top tips. I feel better equipped to face the classroom and cannot thank her enough!"
