Matthew Jones will join the Newman science department as a teacher of Biology. Matt is currently a teacher and science department chair at Stuart Hall High School in San Francisco, California where he has taught AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, Biology, and Anatomy & Physiology since 2003. He has a Biology degree from Washington University in St. Louis and a masters degree from George Washington University. Over the years, Matt has also coached soccer, cross country, and wrestling. Matt’s wife, Mary works for the New Teacher Project on a Gates-funded grant to develop school systems throughout Louisiana. He has a son, Ethan (8) and a daughter, Amy who is 5. They are living on St. Charles Ave. close to Newman, and the family loves New Orleans- although Ethan misses the SF fog! We are excited that this dynamic, experienced teacher is joining the family.
