Mr. Patrick Funk

I'm Mr. Funk, and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to my English class!

About Me: I currently live in Irmo, SC.  I've been married to my wife, Jaime, for 8 years.  We have two sons: a five year old and a two year old.  Keeping them company is our orange tabby named Food Lion (this is NOT a joke).  While my ancestral roots are in the farmlands of Indiana and Illinois, I grew up in Lugoff, SC and graduated from Lugoff-Elgin High School in 2000.  From there I attended USC and obtained a Bachelor's degree in English and Master's in Education.  This is my 11th year teaching at CHS and it feels like home!  I love creative writing, nerding out with a good book, and digging into weird new music.  You'll find much more information housed on my weebly site at
