Matt Barrington, M.A.



My goals for the classroom are to foster safe environments for students to explore the complexities and relationships between issues that most affect us. I bring a sense of curiosity to the classroom, and seek to learn with my students through interactive dialogue. I believe we each bring our own unique set of experiences to the classroom and to life, and I hope to foster connections between these interdisciplinary experiences to promote innovation in and out of the classroom. My teaching experience spans various subjects in K-12 classrooms, as well as master’s-level psychology courses, and non-traditional classroom settings.
