TAMPA, FL — One University of Tampa (UT) housekeeper has taken an unusual journey on her way to becoming like family to the university''s students, according to The Minaret.

Willie Patton began her career as a UT housekeeper back in the 1980s before leaving the school for a factory job, the article stated.

According to the article, when the factory closed down almost two years ago, Patton returned to the place she had once called home.

"I''m a jack of all trades. I''ve done a little bit of everything," said Patton.

Mornings for Patton begin at 7 a.m. Monday through Thursday, but she always has time to stop and smile with students, the article noted.

"I love my students. If it wasn''t for them I wouldn''t have a job. And when I''m not around they say ''I''ve missed you!'' I see my students more than my family, so they are like my family," Patton added.
