Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Matthew Harbert
Welcome to Rolling Ridge! I have been at Rolling Ridge since 2010, starting my journey as a Teaching Assistant, then teaching 2nd and 3rd grade for 4 years each. I am excited to be continuing my role of Instructional Facilitator of Technology, where I work with teachers and students to find innovative, effective uses for technology and pretty much any way we can teach and learn together. I am a big believer in Deeper Learning, providing all students (adults and children) with the freedom to choose their own path, pace, and topics to expand and better their world.
I graduated from Oberlin College in Ohio with my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education in 2010. I am originally from a small town in northern Indiana. I met my wife, Mrs. Harbert while teaching here at Rolling Ridge. We now have a 5 and half year old son, Rowan, who will be attending Rolling Ridge soon, and a 3 and a half year old son, Gavin!
My job is mostly working with teachers as a coach and consultant to help them integrate technology into their instruction and make shifts in their planning and instruction to best prepare our students for their future lives.
