                          HON. ADAM B. SCHIFF

                       Tuesday, January 25, 2005

  Mr. SCHIFF. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the memory of Patricia 
D. Scatoloni who served her local community as a school teacher for 50 
years and served the people of Macedonia as a member of the Peace Corps 
since December. She died of natural causes on January 1, 2005.
  Patricia Scatoloni began her Peace Corps training in September 2004, 
and took her official oath as a volunteer in December. She focused on 
English education in the village of Leskoec where she worked on both 
elementary and adult education. Since 1961 the Peace Corps has sent 
more than 178,000 volunteers to live and work around the world.
  The 74-year-old mother of three will be remembered as an enthusiastic 
and creative teacher who cared deeply about her students. She taught in 
the Los Angeles public schools for 18 years and finished her career in 
the Pasadena public schools as a full-time substitute teacher.
  I ask all Members of Congress to join me today in honoring the memory 
of Patricia Scatoloni for her immense dedication to public service.
