Matt had a way with words, he also had a way with middle schoolers. He enjoyed teaching them, he loved to see them grow and mature into strong, independent people. One of his goals when developing the curriculum for the Middle School was to develop the whole student, while giving them the tools necessary to be successful in everything they do (education, career, and life). He fully believed in the core Montessori principle “Respect the Child”. Matt’s ultimate goal is that Sterling students enjoy their middle school years; they learn the skills necessary to be successful in high school and college; they develop a strong sense of confidence in themselves; and they live a life respecting themselves and each other.
