Matt believes in a socio-constructivist approach to teaching and learning. He is driven by the desire to provide strong academic rigour, coupled with developing key dispositions and thinking routines that support students to be lifelong learners and compassionate citizens. Matt’s ambition is to see all students flourish, through both academic and social/emotional learning.
Personally, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. He has a passion for travelling and living an active lifestyle. On weekends he can be found running, walking, swimming and playing sports with his children.
