“Get outside” might be Patrick’s call to action. In pursuit of degrees in Environmental GeoScience and Geology Patrick has hit the proverbial road from Bermuda to Alaska. Not content to rely on regular means of transportation, he once skied from Juneau, Alaska to Atlin, British Columbia, and was dropped via helicopter into remote wilderness in Yukon Territory. As a teacher Patrick aims to bring that same level of passion, and utilize evidence-based learning practices, to create an engaging classroom that tackles rigorous real world problems, all while building a strong and supportive classroom community. Whenever Patrick isn’t in the classroom you can find him spending time with his family.
