Patricia Woodbridge (SRV ’58)

I particularly loved costumes, scenery, and pretend for the plays we wrote and produced about historical periods. I loved woodshop with Mr. Freeman, where he helped me build a bureau with doors that slid open and big round wood knobs. He taught me to use hand tools, to measure carefully and allow for the depth of the material. As a student in the oldest group and with Peg’s guidance, I planned each week’s work. I might spend an entire day on a large painting, and then the next two days work on my math or writing. Learning to manage my time while doing a creative project was an important skill I’ve used all my life.
