My name’s Matt … welcome!
So I’m a nerdy math teacher. I know … nerd? … math teacher? Wow how cliché. Anyway, its true and I love it. I used to be an art teacher but with getting my Master’s in Math Leadership in Education from UMBC I changed up the subject matter and began my trek to teach math to the masses. What I like to do is use what I learned and loved about art and art education and use it in my math classroom. Won’t bore you here with it but it makes for a rather interesting class.
Right now I’m debating on whether or not to go back to school again to get my Master’s in Administration or just get a Ph.D. in Education and see where that takes me. Teaching and being a teacher is my love.
On the side I teach karate. I’ve taken and taught karate for over 25 years. I’m working on putting together some instructional and demonstration stuff for my 4th degree black belt that I will be up for in a couple of years. Put the work in early and get the results you want right?
For fun I love playing games … mostly board games (not Monopoly think more Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride). I am amassing a bit of a collection and I love every one of them. I also like to read and write when I can. I have some fun ideas for stories that I want to write about one day. I just need to sit down in front of the computer and do it. I love to travel though right now its been traveling locally I recently moved to Baltimore from Columbia so I don’t know the city that well. Care to show me around?
