Mr. Patrick Rowe
Hello and welcome to what promises to be a great year at LEMS!
I am thrilled to be teaching 8th Grade Writing here and can't wait to see what the 8th grade mind is dreaming up these days. I am not a South Carolina native, but my wife and I have lived here for ten years now and have loved it...so much so that we are now raising our two boys right here in Elgin. I grew up in Door County, Wisconsin, so when I say "you guys" just know it directly translates to y'all. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in 2005 with a degree in Print Journalism and a minor in English. I am an avid golfer and for the last 13 years had been working as a golf professional. Recently though, I realized that my passion wasn't for teaching the game but for teaching in general. So now here I am, eager to guide a new generation of young writers. My goal as their teacher is to inspire them to want to learn more. I'm excited to come back to school, and I want them to join me in never losing that drive for learning.
Oh, almost forgot. GO PACK GO!!!
