My name is Matt Summers, and I will be the 5th grade inclusion teacher at Madison Avenue Upper Elementary School. I am from Greenville, MS, but I have lived in Oxford, MS for the last 7 years. My wife and I recently moved to this area, and we are planning to plant our roots here and make Madison our home. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in mild/moderate special education, English, and social studies. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in English. Both my Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree were obtained from the University of Mississippi. I will soon obtain my Specialist's Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Mississippi as well. For the last three years, I served as a 5th grade ELA teacher in South Panola School District. Prior to teaching in South Panola, my educational experience included substitute teaching in elementary schools and facilitating students with severe disabilities. I am excited about joining MAUE! I am looking forward to an amazing year!
