What Heather has to say about Patrick:
Patrick is a hard worker and turns in homework that is often above and beyond what is asked of him. His homework projects are very creative, and you can tell he took his time to learn as much as he could about the assignment. Patrick is also a student that likes to participate in class. He will add to the class by suggesting videos or documentaries of topics that we are learning. This only helps to make the class more enjoyable.Heather Getson, OTA
