Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Matthew Gage. I am entering my 20something year as a teacher, 16th in Loudoun County. I grew up in the burbs of Chicago and I still have many friends there. I miss the food, pizza, and portillos. I graduated from George Williams College in Downers Grove, Illinois and completed my teaching credentials from Aurora University in Aurora, Illinois (The City of Lights).
The 5th-grade curriculum is challenging and it will be important for rising 5th graders to understand the importance of working hard and preparing for school each day. The 5th-grade teachers switch classes so our students will benefit from 3 expert teachers throughout the year. We all look forward to a great year!
Should you have any questions throughout the year please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
