Matt began his education with the intent to become an
architect but soon realized he loved the building process even more than
the design. He said, “I had worked in construction for many years, you
think I would have realized this a little sooner.” He changed his major
to art education with a minor in architectural design and found his
direction in life.
Teaching now for several years, Matt enjoys the constant
connection with art. He can be found in his classroom teaching art as
well as creating. “I think for me to be a successful art teacher, I
must first be an artist.” He continues to educate beyond the walls of
his room, in other classes and the community.
