As the Community Manager at Committee for Children, Matt strives to support the important work of SEL educators, advocates, and thought leaders by fostering the development strong, sustainable communities of practice. Previously, Matt developed research-based SEL curriculum for elementary, middle, and high school students, taught language arts and social studies, and (in the distant past) appeared on stage at many schools throughout the Chicagoland area dressed in chainmail and wielding a very large sword. In his spare time he chases two small children and . . . well, that’s about it.
