7th / 8th Grade Science- Rm 302

Name and Grade

Mr. Patrick Rodrigues • 7th/8th Grade Science

Where are you From?

I was born asnd raised in Chicago. I grew up in the Rogers Park area.  

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Barcelona, Spain because it is a place I have always been fascinated with from its rich history to its mouth watering food. I love the laid back style that they bring to life. Its the way it should be.  

What is one book that everyone must read?

"The Lord of the Flies" is one of favorite books of all time. The struggle between characters and the symbolism of life and death is what makes this book very close to reality.  

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

Dr. Maurer, my Biology teacher in High school. He knew everything and was always willing to share. He was my first experience with labs and experiments and he always let us figure out and explore on our own. He taught me how to take good notes and remember everything. He was able to tap into my mind and make me really think about things no ther teacher had up to that point. I wonder where he is now.  

What do you like most about Goudy?

Goudy is a school like no other. It is like a second home to me. I feel welcomed and appreciated. My opinion matters when it comes to helping Goudy become the best school in the city. The staff is great and works together and makes you feel welcome. They all teach at a high level and hold each and every student accountable. The students are great. They challenge us to challenge them daily. They are respectful and proud of what they have accomplished. Goudy has built a vast community of learners from our alumni to our current student body to the future cougar cubs on their way to us. There is no other place I would rather be. Cougar for life!
