Pat (Vaast) Workman was born and raised in Westport. She graduated from Staples High School, then Bay Path College.
For over 30 years, she has taught at Greens Farms Nursery School. It’s not easy working with 4-year-olds — but her patience, love and wonderful ways with young children has prepared hundreds to head off to kindergarten.
It is easy to forget your nursery school teacher. But wherever Pat goes in Westport, kids run up to say hi.
And their parents. She’s taught a surprising number of moms and dads of children she now has.
Pat and her husband Jim have been married for 47 years. He happily shares her with her students. She spends countless hours at home, working on projects to help inspire them.
Congratulations, Pat — you’re “06880”‘s Unsung Hero of the week!
