Andy Patari, ES Alum, Raps Again

Alumnus Andy Patari, MS ’12, has just released a new rap video, I Educate (So They Know), a project he completed while a student teacher at Compass School in Westminster, Vermont, for spring semester 2012.

Andy enlisted the help of some talented Compass students, who directed and edited the video outside of class. “This was a project that originated from my own love for lyricism (I’ve been writing and performing raps for ten years now, with informal acts from the White Mountains to Guatemala), as well as my need for a job in the fall, hence the ‘hire me’ line,” Andy said.

No problem there – Andy has been hired as a science teacher by Four Rivers Charter School in Greenfield, Massachusetts, where he’ll join three other AUNE alums.

Andy is well-known at AUNE for his Ecological Economics video, one version of which he performed at a retirement party for Tom Wessels, professor emeritus of environmental studies, in April.
