About Patrick

I'm an experienced educator certified to teach MS Math and Science and K-12 Music. I am a professional performer on woodwinds and trumpet, guitar, ukulele and more. This past year, I have been a substitute teacher in many Des Moines schools, primarily as an elementary classroom instructor. I have been a long-term sub at King Elementary supporting 3rd & 4th grade math students the past few months. I anticipate teaching a morning summer school class at Edmunds/Homes of Oakridge Mondays thru Fridays beginning mid-June.

On request, I have 3 Elementary School principals who have written letters of recommendations for me. I love teaching and working with young people to improve their math, science, and language arts skills. I have also completed 15 of 18 credit hours to be certified as an English Language Learner teacher. (4.0 GPA)

I play all the traditional band instruments and currently play trumpet with the Des Moines Community Band and the Beaver Creek Jazz Band. I also have 15+ years playing saxophone with the Greater Des Moines Community Jazz Band.

If you're looking to master Garage Band or any other music software recording programs I have many years experience as a recording engineer and live-sound engineer.
