Mr. Matt Wilson
Hello! My name is Matt Wilson and I am one of the fourth grade math teachers here at TIS. This is my third year teaching at TIS and I am having a blast every day. I formerly taught at Brookwood Elementary School, just east of Tuscaloosa, for two years. Prior to teaching I completed my bachelors degree at the University of Alabama where I majored in elementary education.(Roll Tide!) During my time there I played the trumpet in the Million Dollar Band. My three years in the band were filled with exciting times including traveling to the national championship game in California! I am currently helping the band at THS during this marching season.
My wife and I have been married for just over four years and live here in Alabaster. We are excited to be welcoming new life into the world this December with our first child! We are looking forward to the new changes that are ahead of us. We also have three pets, a dog and two cats (still working on getting the dog to like the cats!) and love them dearly.
Math is my favorite subject to teach. It thrills me to see the light bulb come on, especially after hard work and persistence. I am very excited about the potential this year holds and am even more excited to reach that potential!
