Patricia Wakefield

Pat Wakefield was TEAL’s first president in 1967. After a long caeer at VCC King Edward Campus, finally as Division Chair, Pat moved to Vancouver School Board in 1975 to become their first ESL consultant. She worked tirelessly for our profession and on her retirement in 1985-the party was at Hycroft with bagpipes-TEAL created a scholarship, in perpetuity, in her name to enable a TEAL member to travel to a Commonwealth country. On her 90th birthday the same bagpiper played “Happy Birthday” on his pipes-again at Hycroft. Pat is often referred to as the Queen of ESL in B.C. A fitting title for a gracious lady.
