Matt is from a family of educators and earned his Bachelor of Science in Education and Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he received his spiritual and theological formation, and his Master of Science in Education Administration from Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, Matt served as OLPH Church’s Youth Minister and later OLPH School’s eighth-grade teacher and Assistant Principal.
Matt’s gifts as a classroom teacher have made him beloved by his students. While serving as Assistant Principal at OLPH School, he has earned the respect of his fellow teachers, shown in the recent honor of being named Teacher of the Year. Working with our team of dedicated teachers, who bring decades of classroom experience, we look forward to the leadership that Matt brings to our school’s academic mission. Matt is committed to the pursuit of academic excellence and strives to develop each student’s abilities and talents in an environment that nurtures creativity, a joy of learning, and Catholic values.
An active Parishioner at OLPH since his childhood, Matt regularly volunteers at OLPH Church’s Parish Dinner Nights.
What do you do in your free time?
When I am not at school, I can be found out in my garden with my vegetables or in the kitchen cooking up a new recipe. I also spend a lot of time on the weekends canning and making different jams and baked goods with my grandparents (who are also OLPH Parishioners).
