Other Information

Matt Donald teaches Honors Algebra, Beginning Algebra and Algebra I in the Middle School. After receiving his B.A. in Mathematics and Religion at St. Olaf and his M.I.T. in Mathematics Education at University of Washington, he taught at an independent school in Seattle for six years. He began teaching at SPA in 2013 and says he loves teaching middle school students because every day is different. “Interactions with students are never predictable; I love hearing questions and comments from students that demonstrate a novel way of thinking about a concept or solving a problem,” says Mr. Donald. When he is not in his classroom, Mr. Donald likes to play basketball, drink coffee, play his guitar, and backpack in the wilderness of Montana. He also has a wife and twin daughters with whom he loves to read, swim, and play.
