Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Matthew Gage. I have many years of teaching experience. I am happy I will be working with some familiar faces on our fifth grade team.
I grew up in a combination of Athens, GA and Chicago, Il. I graduated from George Williams College and went on to get my teaching credentials from Aurora University, both near Chicago. I have three grown, somewhat, daughters, two still in the area. I enjoy science and worked for The Challenger Center for Space Science Education in Alexandria for several years before moving further out west.
We will be learning new math and social studies curriculums this year. I will be teaming with Mrs. Aho who will teach our language arts and social studies. I will be teaching the science and math. We often share responsibilities and support each others curriculums. I am looking forward to the challenge of a new year and am excited to be working with a great team.
