Mr. Patera was the best history teacher I ever had! I was in his class in 1983 & 1984. I learned so much about the U.S.S.S.R. But I also watched him teach a student who seemingly had little interest in learning and turn him into an interested student who got good grades and actually took part in class. He opened my mind to the wonderful world of history!! What an awesome teacher!
Best teacher I ever had. I loved his lectures and enjoyed learning in his class. He demanded promptness and respect, but he took his job very seriously and never wasted our time. His passion for teaching was always apparent. Thank you Mr. Patera!
Patera was the best High School teacher i ever had. I had him in 1985 and 1986. I learned things about China and the U.S.S.R in has class that taught me more than college classes
Hands down, one of the very best in all my years of schooling. Thank you, Mr. P
His assignments were hard but I learned a lot in there.
