I can say without hesitation that Matt is passionate and dedicated to working with children, and fluent in the natural world and all that it offers as a classroom without walls. He has engaging and inspiring teaching skills, and he is inquisitive, persistent, and creative. He is also warm, intelligent and open-hearted and makes it easy for his students to engage and connect very quickly. Matt is insightful about the instructional needs of children and creative in developing projects to inspire them, and equally comfortable letting their own innate curiosity drive the work of the day. His energy is infectious and enables everyone around him to achieve at their highest potential.”
