Mr. Matthew Watson
Hey Buccaneers! I am excited and honored to join Bryan Road for its inaugural school year! I grew up in West Virginia and now consider the Garner area to be my home. I began my teaching career at Rand Road Elementary and have taught there for the past 12 years. During that time, I taught multiple grades, served as a mentor for the Helping Hands program, and facilitated student clubs that helped build a connection with the community.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and our dog, watching movies, playing and watching sports, and Sunday dinners with my extended family.
I am looking forward to meeting and working with the new families of Bryan Road. I believe teaching starts with developing trust and rapport with students as individual learners. My classroom is a safe learning environment where students have the opportunity to share and create ideas. My job is to facilitate learning experiences and help the students discover and utilize their strengths. Having high expectations for each student and setting learning goals with them will insure progress will be made in their academics.
I'm excited to meet everyone soon!
