Matt grew up in Lynden, Washington and graduated from Calvin College with a B.A. in Education. In 2005, he began teaching Middle School English, Social Studies, and Bible at Redlands Christian School in Southern California. After eight years of teaching, God led his family to Colorado. Matt is very excited to join the staff at Denver Christian. Matt's dad graduated as a Crusader in 1972, so DC has always been special to him. It is his hope that God will use him to encourage students to develop their gifts and talents and reach their full potential academically, socially, and spiritually. Matt's wife, Lisa, has been married to him for 10 years. They have three children- Luke (6), Elin (4), and Judah (3 mo). As a family they enjoy attending sporting events, working on home improvement projects, and going up to the mountains. When Matt is away from school, he likes spending time with family and friends, reading, golfing, and really anything that involves sports.
