COLUMBIA, SC—Local author and retired educator Patricia Prescott releases her new book, How Faith Brought Me Over the Mountains, which is a powerful, insightful, and inspirational book that tells a portion of Patricia’s life story as a teacher in the public school system. Believe it or not, she was bullied on the job by the very administrators for whom she worked. Although the school district has strict policies against workplace bullying, discrimination, and harassment, those policies seemed to go ignored by some of the administrators during Patricia’s tenure. Nevertheless, her story is not intended to identify the bullies or to retaliate in any way but rather to encourage others who may be experiencing workplace and other challenges to trust in God for deliverance from the situation. “There are many people who are going through difficult situations, whether personal or job-related,” Patricia said. “I believe they will be able to use this book as a guide to help them find positive ways to deal with their situations” she said.
Patricia will sign copies of the book at a book launch reception on Saturday, July 17, 2021, 12 noon, at Love Center Baptist Church, 1313 Ellerbe Street, Columbia, SC 29204. Light refreshments will be served. Patricia Prescott earned a BA from the University of South Carolina, and attended the City University, City College in New York City, where she graduated with honors with both a Master of Science in Education and a Master of Social Science. She earned a degree in Education Administration from Teachers College, Columbia University. As a retired school teacher, Patricia is often called on to help find ways to support families in the school district and continues to work as a substitute teacher.
