Trainer | Coach | Writer
After 20 years in the ESL classroom, I now work as a teacherpreneur doing the things I love such as writing courses and e-books; conducting training locally and globally; providing instructional coaching for new teachers; and helping teachers to Dream Beyond the Classroom!
Teachers have many transferrable skills that can be monetized.
I have developed resources based on my own personal experience of transitioning from teacher to teacherpreneur.
My goal is to help you move from dreaming to doing and get started!

"Many teachers feel that they would like to do something different with their teaching skills, or simply work in a different context such as teaching online. However, not many of us know how to start. With the skills that only an expert teacher has, Patrice's The Essential Teacher to Teacherpreneur Toolkit will help you start. Her words are simple yet wise. She goes over all those topics that will matter to you such as branding, niche, transferrable skills, social media and networking, and makes it all approachable. She shares her experience and expertise to show us that making the transition from teacher to teacherpreneur is just round the corner. "
"I bought The Essential Teacher to Teacherpreneur Toolkit. I highly recommend it to a teacher who would like to become entrepreneur. It is full of excellent tips. "
"Your idea of interviewing teacherpreneurs and gathering all the info in one place is fabulous! It's very useful and inspiring. I remember that 10 years ago, when I started my own teaching business, I looked for model stories, but I found none. So hats off for this. I'm lucky to be inspired by models like you! It's so good to see that more and more teachers have the courage to set up their own business!"
"Your interview on Finding your Niche as part of the Online Teacher Summit was amazing. It was a game-changer for me. Thank you! "
"Thank you for empowering teachers to go one step ahead."
"I have been working for different companies for many years and now have the courage to start my own business now. I'm ready to become a teacherpreneur. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. "
"Thank you so much for sharing. I really appreciated you being honest about not being well suited to work with younger students. I tried working with elementary children in China, the pay was great and the scheduling was perfect for me, but I am not a good fit for young learners. I do not meet many ESL professionals that prefer to work with adults, so I really appreciated hearing you talk about that. I don't feel so alone anymore. I will be using the information you so generously shared to help me find my niche and grow my freelance ESL service."
