School Reviews

I attended St. Pat''s Grammer/High School. 1966-1973. I came from South Boston by bus into Roxbury during the most intense error of prejudice between black and white. Once you walked into the school yard prejudice didn''t exist. St. Pat''s showed me how to live in all worlds, believe in myself, be the best I could be. Sister Dorotheus was my best cheerleader, I will never forget her. Sister Anna James made me do "Summer School" for Latin, LOL from Chicago via "snail mail". Sister Dennis Marie made me grovel to come back for High School (I was never going to an all girl High School). I caught the "snicker" after I thanked her with all my heart. LOL Sister Anne Donavan (although we didn''t get along) was one of the best teachers I ever had. Thank You.
