It's been 10 years and I still laugh about "Mike Mon-KEY" and for the first time ever , found American history very interesting. The best teacher I ever had, hands down.
My freshman history teacher, I will never forget his classes. He was so different that my retention in the class soared. Even now, years later, I remember some of the songs (The Cobra Song), or his squirrel-powered car, the Zulu Clan, and Napoleon. Truly the best experience I had at North Olmsted High School. I wish he could be my history teacher once more.
Best teacher I ever had. Period. 30 years after I got out of N.O. he's one of the few I even remember at this point. He truly cares passionately about what he is doing.
I had him for 7th and 8th grade (yes, two years)! His history class was by far the most interesting history class I have ever had. I found his historical stories quite riveting.
this guy was nothing short of astonishing. he actually made history fun, and worth listening too. i regret those days i fell asleep, because i prob missed a lot. too bad he retired, i'll miss him!!
I loved having Mr. Patten in Freshman year, I found his class very easy and enjoyed going there everyday. The only thing I have to complain about is the two projects, they were a bit too long.
Yes, he really does know everything. I knew people who thought his class was boring, but I really liked going to class every day. We learned through long assignments (easy) and picture slideshows.
Fantastic teacher. I'll always treasure memories of his class.
I had him for 8th grade history in 1988, and I still remember all of his examples and methods as some of the best. Absolutely one of my favorite teachers.
hes the coolest. he always has fun in class but still manages to be a great teacher
Mkay...he lives in a shoebox, is worth 37 cents,has paws and hoofs, and uses a "chewy" as a blanket at night...you just cant help but pay attention to him! He knows everthing too, which is a plus!!!
Real funny! i mean whose not funny when coming from Orphan Land! hahaha. Hes an awesome teacher!
Mr. Patten is definately the coolest guy ever. He's really funny and his class is a lot of fun. You'll be happy if you get him.
amazing teacher! if you have him right i love mr. mapp on everything and you will get a PAW of extra credit points.
Patten is so awesome. I hated history before this year and now i actually pay attention. He makes the stuff so interesting how can you not listen?
Patten is awesome. You learn a lot and a tip to all that have him: listen to him talk, he gives away the extra credit answers!
Only teacher who can make history interesting. Best teacher at NOHS!
Mr Patton is my all-time favorite teacher. He made such an impression on me when he was still in the middle school. It was a turning point in my life!!!!
This man has one thing NO teachers have at the high school have: The ability to teach
Mr.P is amazing he is very weird but fun like all he does is lecture but its amanzing not boring like most teachers
Mr. Patten is a really good teacher. I was kinda scared of him at the begining of the year cuz i thought he hated me but he isn't too hard as long as you listen
He makes history incredibly easy, you listen to him, take an easy test, get the bonus and over ace his exams.
Mr. Patten, through hilarious antics and fun lectures, is by far the best history teacher I've ever had.
Mr.Patten is an AMAZING teacher, his class work is very easy.....if you listen to him. And how can you not listen to him? He knows EVERYTHING about history. I cannot even begin to describe how great of not only a teacher, but a person he is.
