Welcome to high school/middle school social studies! My name is Mr. Patrick. I am from Vivian, South Dakota and attended Lyman High School, in Presho. I went to college at the University of South Dakota and graduated in the spring of 2020. I student taught at Viborg-Hurley, teaching both middle school and high school social studies. I will be teaching American History, US and World Affairs, 7th Grade Geography, and World History/World Geography. I have always had a passion for history. I worked at the Lyman County Museum in Presho and worked at the National Guard Museum in Pierre. I helped my dad and uncles restore an old country school, moved it to town, and created a museum out of the country school. I will use this passion for history to mold the minds of the students, and hopefully teach them to love history. I look forward to getting to know everybody and am excited to start the great year!
