Mr. Patrick


This year as we learn about moving and staying healthy, we will ask 3 questions each lesson.


What are we going to learn and do?

Why is it important to know?

How do I know I've learned the skill and information?

I am so looking forward to the 2020/2021 school year!!


I was born in Elkhorn, Wisconsin in 1965.  We moved to Louisiana in 1975.  I graduated Covington High School in 1983, Nicholls State University, and earned a Master's of Education in 1991.  I started teaching in St. Charles Parish that year, and here I am 29 years later.

I have an amazingly talented 15 year old daughter and a wonderful wife.  My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary this past February.

I was born with heart disease.  I played highschool basketball and love to exercise.  In 1997 my aortic valve burst due to a rare genetic disease.  I've faced many heart challenges since. 

I believe that healthy living as saved my life on more that one occasion.

I want your child to know not only how important it is to live a healthy lifestyle, but how to live making healthy choices.
