Mr. Matthew White
My name is Matthew White and I am a third grade teacher at Primos Elementary. I graduated from Temple University in 2012, with a B.S. in Kinesiology. I received my M.Ed. in Educational Leadership at Holy Family University. I am certified to teach Health and Physical Education K-12 and Elementary Education PK-4. I have been teaching for eight years and tutoring for six years. My passion for teaching started in eighth grade when I received my first job as a surf instructor. Since then I am constantly learning about my profession and always trying to improve. My hope is that after this year your child will want to become a life long learner. My approach to teaching has proven to be effective in my students' academics and personal lives. The number one priority for my students' is to enhance their outlook towards education. Through TEAMWORK and COMMUNICATION we can create postive and productive learners and citizens.
"Every problem is an oppurtunity in disguise."
As we embark on the journey of the 2020-2021 school year, I want to let you all know that we are in this together. These are unprecedented times and TEAMWORK and COMMUNICATION is what will help us, help the children. We will make mistakes, we will get frustrated, and nothing will be perfect; however, if we stick together, WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!
I have created a "Parents of Team 219" email group. Please check your email on file with the district each day. I have sent out multiple emails to all of you explaining the different forms of technology we will be using throughout our virtual learning experience.
Once you read my emails and are able to download the Class Dojo application we will be able to communicate seamlessly throughout the day.
