My name is Patrick Snyder and I am in my third full year of teaching 8th grade Social Studies at Godwin Heights Middle School. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Group Social Studies major and an Economics minor. I completed my Master's Degree last year at Central Michigan University with a Curriculum and Instruction endorsement. Even though this is my third year teaching 8th grade Social Studies, I have been in the district for five years. I love the relationships that I have built with the students and families in the district and appreciate the sense of community that has been established within the district. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our friends, travelling, and all things sports-related.
