Matthew Woods

When you do what you love, it isn’t considered work, it’s passion.  I love being an educator.

In addition to his K-12 work, Matthew has also served as an adjunct professor and field instructor at the collegiate level for student-teachers. Matthew hosts an educational podcast, Leading Out The Woods, and is the author of the children’s book series, I Wanna Be… , starring his son imagining different occupations he would like to grow up to be. Matthew is currently working on his first set of educational processing guides.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
