Are there any exceptions in atomic radius, ionization energy, or electronegativity trends on the periodic table that would affect the orientation of the Lewis structure that do not follow the observed patterns learned in class?

I am pretty sure there is one exception dealing with half filled sub-shells but he has not gone over them specifically. At least I believe so.

There shouldn't be any exceptions in regards to periodic trends and drawing Lewis structures

I agree that there shouldn't be any exceptions to periodic table trends. Generally, ionization energy decreases down a group and increases across a period. Electron affinity is highest for elements in the top right corner of the periodic table.
