Matt has been actively involved as an educator since August 2005. He began his journey by returning to his alma mater, Lancaster High School, when he accepted a position there the week before school was set to begin. He began his first year teaching US Government and Geography, two subjects he was not at the time credentialed to teach. Despite the challenges, Matt persevered and realized the need to improve his craft. He would ultimately go on to earn an MSEd and an MA while serving the students at Lancaster High.
Currently Matt serves as an Assistant Professor of History based on the Warsaw Campus of Rappahannock Community College. He is pursuing his PhD in Leadership so that he may continue to serve his students and colleagues at RCC. Like LHS, the community college has its share of challenges, and Matt is continually reflecting on ways to overcome them to meet the needs of his students.
