Pat taught 30 years in the Wichita School District. Pat was part of a group of teachers who led a battle to keep the arts in public schools and to integrate schools during the civil rights movement. She left the school system in 1981, to live on the coast, then Colorado Springs, but grandchildren drew her back and she returned to Wichita spending 10 years on McConnell base teaching English, through their college program. Pat strongly believed Art was of intrinsic value to the health and well balance of all people, but especially student development. Pat was a spirited soul who was generous to a fault. She was a feminist and a woman of strong faith. She will be missed. In lieu of flowers, a memorial is with the Arts Partners 903 S. Edgemoor St. Wichita, Kansas 67218. www.SmithFamilyMortuaries.com.

Mrs. Burgardt was my fourth grade teacher at Isely. She left an impression on me like no other teacher. She was kind and creative, artistic and poetic. I still have a poem she wrote for me back then when I was 9 years old, and I still have it.
I am so glad I found her again 25 years later and introduced her to the man who became my husband. I think about her often, the things she taught me, the love and acceptance she showed me. She is one of those people who I can definitely say shaped the person I am today. ~ Peri [Parenteau] Saner
