Mr. Matt Edwards
My name is Matt Edwards and this is my thirteenth year teaching here at Mountain View. First of all, I believe that every student is owed the best educational experience possible. I believe it is my moral obligation to do whatever is within my ability to prepare each student for the rigor of the college and/or career life that awaits them. I believe that students learn best through inquiry: when they are asked tough questions, encouraged to question the world around them, and driven to form their own questions. I believe that students need to be held to high standards (academically and socially). As an educator, I should only want to see my students reach their full potential, not somewhere close or good enough. And finally, I believe that I need to offer assistance in any way possible. That translates to reading and commenting on all papers thoroughly, being available to students before school, after school, and at lunch, and encouraging them to be their absolute best.
