Mr. Jerry Patt

Hello!  My name is Jerry Patt and I have been a math teacher since 1985,  since 1994, right here at East Leyden.  I started my career at Taft high school in Chicago.  I attended the University of Illinois in Urbana, where I received a B.S. in Finance.  I worked as a business system analyst for a few years before returning to Northern Illinois University to obtain my teaching credentials.  I am certified to teach mathematics and business classes.

I have also been the Junior / Senior class advisor throughout my entire career.  I love teaching high school students.  This is the best job I can imagine!
