Matt will teach Humanities at DMHS staring in 2019-20. Matt started volunteering at a Chicago Public school in his neighborhood while he was studying in Chicago. He volunteered in a drama and language arts classroom. This was an incredibly formative experience for him. After he graduated, he enrolled in the Boettcher Teaching Residence to pursue his licensure and to continue to work with excellent students. He has completed the program and a year of co-teaching at Prairie View High School. He is excited to start working at DMHS.
During the summers, Matt has been working as a wilderness guide leading backpacking, rock climbing, and whitewater rafting trips. Matt loves to whitewater kayak, bike, skateboard and garden during his free time.
