Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Billy Patrick
I am from Winnsboro, South Carolina, a small town in the upper part of the state. After graduating from high school I attended Clemson University and received a degree in Natural Science Education. I received my Master of Education degree from Clemson University 5 years later. I started teaching at Southside high School/Middle School in Florence immediately after graduation. I taught Earth Science, Physical Science, 8th grade General Math, and 1oth grade General Math. After teaching there for 2 years I came to West Florence when it first opened. I was the Planetarium Director when West Florence first opened. Eventually I taught Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Physical Science, Earth Science, Algebra 1, SAT Math, Astronomy, and General Math at West Florence. I have also taught Physical Science and Physics at Wilson High School and Algebra and Science in Adult school. I have been teaching for a long time.
I am married and have 2 step-daughters and 4 grandchildren. I love spending time with them.
I enjoy Clemson University sports, camping, fishing, and working in the yard.
