Welcome Back Mustangs!
I'm Matt Kikel and I am so excited to see you all back for another great year at Meadowland! I am equally excited about the opportunity to serve as team lead for fourth grade, this year. I am proud to say that I will be entering my fourth year here at Meadowland; seventeenth year teaching overall. We have a lot of fun and innovative things to look forward to in fourth grade and I can't wait to share in the experience with each of you.
Just a bit of background on me: I'm a product of Arlington County Public schools, here in Virginia. I graduated from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania with a BA in Theater. After a brief stint on the stage/screen in NYC, I attended UMBC, where I received my Masters in Elementary Education. In my free time I am a sports enthusiast - 49ERS, KU JAYHAWKS BASKETBALL AND OF COURSE ... C A P S!!!! I have the privilege to be the head coach of the Boys Varsity Tennis Team at Dominion High School, here in Sterling. I am also a father to the best 12 year old around, Nicholas!
Other teachers that will be visiting my classroom are Stacy Theile, Patricia Martin-Shaw, Annette Demott, Sandy Ingram and Stacey Williams.
Again, welcome back to Meadowland and I look forward to what this school year has in store for us all!
