Patton Junior High School


My name is Lori Wilcox. This is my 14th year at Patton Jr. High and also my 14th year of teaching. I graduated from Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University) in San Marcos, Texas, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education with a History Major. I received a Master's Degree in Education from National Louis University while living in Germany.
My husband retired from the Army in 2005 after 25 years of service. We have lived in many different locations, including Vienna, Austria. We have three children, two of whom are Patton graduates. I bring to my classroom the love of social studies that I acquired as a teenager following my first trip to Berlin, Germany. Included with my love of social studies, is my excitement of being able to teach and share my knowledge and insights with an age group that I truly enjoy.

US Constitution Test

The US Constitution Test is scheduled for Tuesday, 26 September.  We have been discussing and learning about the Constitution and the US Government since the 2nd week of school.  I have purposely not rushed through the information.  And, we have continuously reviewed.  The students need to review the Constitution Handbook and the US Constitution, both are located in the American Journey textbook.  They also need to look at the several worksheets concerning the Preamble, Articles, Amendments, and checks and balances. We will spend the entire class period on Monday reviewing using Kahoot and individual white boards.  However, students need to also study on their own and not rely solely on Monday.  The students have seen the test before as they were given it as a Pre-test on 23 August.
