My name is Patrick J. Rohan and I have been a teacher for almost twenty years. I am a former French and Religion teacher at St. Dominic High School on the island of Sint Maarten and have taught at the Dominico-Americano Institute in the Dominican Republic as an assistant ESL teacher. Presently, I am pursuing a Masters Degree in Bilingual Special Education at Adelphi University and will be doing my student-teaching internship year here at MS118.
I strongly believe that teaching and learning are a physical, mental and spiritual quest that I, as a teacher, and the community must ignite in our students. In order to do this, it is important to meet the needs of our children not just in the classroom, but abroad as well. When children are healthy physically and mentally, the stronger they will become academically. It is really rewarding to see students grow academically.
I am looking forward to working with and learning from this awesome teaching staff at MS118, as well with parents and the community in order to ensure that the needs of our students are being met.
