“I’m developing students who will have the skills required to enter into crucial scientific fields to improve the Earth’s future. These will include areas such as climate change and how to feed the Earth’s growing populations,” says Matthew, Science Teacher with NSW Department of Education.
“My role is to instil the knowledge and understanding required to make students forward-thinkers and reflect on how our actions affect the Earth,” says Matthew.
Matthew takes pride and satisfaction in his role knowing he’s helping students develop a better understanding of the world we live in.
“The best part of my day is when I’m providing students with real-life situations to allow them to build a better contextual understanding of the world around them,” he says.
When he’s not teaching students about our planet, Matthew likes to unwind with sports.
“I play soccer for a local club and really enjoy playing sports,” he says.
