Trish Martin worked as a teacher at Pentucket Workshop for over 40 years while her two children were growing up.  "I shared my time with many wonderful women whose different approaches to teaching taught me something new every day. The time spent with the children was so rewarding that after I officially retired, I decided I needed PW in my life. So, with the support of our past director, and now with Sue, our present director, I have been invited to spend Wednesday mornings regularly at school. Lucky me!  On other days of the week, I can be caught playing golf or tennis, but mostly on my knees happily pulling weeds in my gardens."
